These papers are part of Canon's current printer rebates.  Can anyone compare the two papers?

I just purchased a Canon Pixma pro100 and got both Semi Gloss and Luster paper as gifts-with-purchase... to my eye, the papers are nearly identical. Luster has a slightly duller finish than Semi Gloss, which isnt really glossy at all -- both have a gorgeous, almost pearly finish.  And the print quality is simply STUNNING. I typically only print my work on cotton Matte papers, but based on the quality of this paper I may just change that.

Most of the brands, the Luster finish will have a lightly pearl/texture finish.  It's something you can't really feel, but semi-gloss will be more smooth with a very lighter sheen to it.  If you see Epson's Luster vs Semi-gloss, you can tell the difference between them while having them next to each other.  Quality wise, you may not see a huge difference; thought the Epson Luster is a top seller vs their semi-gloss.  Canon's version may be a bit different.  But that's the best way to explain from my experience with the 2 versions.
