How noticeable would be printing a 16' x 24 image on an Epson 3800 if it was done in 8 bit vs 16 bit, all other things held constant?

Not at all.

I buy my own photographic kit. Diving equipment manufacturers and diving services suppliers get even-handed treatment from me whether they choose to advertise in the publications I write for or not. All the equipment I get on loan is returned as soon as it is finished with. Did you know you can now get Diver Mag as an iPad/Android app?
