New fork for my Lynskey

i am looking to upgrade or just change the fork on my Lynskey.
I don't have any complaints except that it is limiting me to a ~26mm tire. The frame can run a larger tire no problem. I am considering a chrome steel from from Soma or something like that. I would like to get a ~30-32 in there.

Anyone have any other suggestions?

I've been thinking about the same change for my Merlin. The Soma Tange Prestige 57 fork is the leading candidate so far... Or if I hit the lottery getting Eric Estlund to build one...

Yeah, I have been on the hunt for one.
Can't swing a new one with the house and the kids that always want to eat.
