I´ve have been using this printer in 2 months now and am extremely pleased. Canned profiles work great with Canon papers (especially PRO-range). With properly calibrated monitor you´ll get the same "results" on paper. The printer is easy to set-up and ergonomics are great. The quality of prints (subjectively) is much better than from my old Epson 2100 (with Cathy´s profiles and Epson papers) and the speed is stunning! All in all - great buy, worth every penny!
