Summary: This printer makes exceptional prints on a wide variety of paper and is built like a tank. However, it's definitely not for point and shoot hobbyists, or even impatient amateurs. Ink usage seems far less than my comparable epsons, and this printer is never clogged, meaning no wasted paper. However, it takes a while to figure out, and it takes a bit of work.
Summary: The iPF5100 is a large, high quality printer, capable of output as good as or better than the competition and of more expensive printers. The ink usage is tolerable, and the paper handling is superb. Black and white images on art paper are IMHO best of class. Setup is quite easy. The roll paper unit works very well. Bronzing is no worse, but probably no better than the competition.
