Pro9500 is long time overdue.
I do have IPF5000 and luckily one of the trouble free ones. I guess HP B9180 is the king of 13" printers at the moment . Will Canon Pro9500 be a real competitor ?
I do have my doubts. And it's because I can't take Canon seriously when it is about customer service. They are well behind of competitors.
And about the quality of the print or longgevity or technical issues , I will wait and see. I would not see Canon can beat B9180 in these matters as well. HP Z series are already showing how HP has been progressed .
If you are a potential 13" buyer , you might be better off wait a bit more and see some reviews and comparisons before buy a well delayed printer.
