This looks like a replacement for the iP4600. Don't know why as there wasn't much wrong with it.

Anyway, if it's anything like the iP4600, then Canon is on to a winner.

Lately, Canon printers seems to excel.

Putting my money where my mouth is: I have around 4 printers at home - they are all Canon. These replaced existing working HP, Epson and Lexmark printers. They really are that good.

Canon's different ranges are confusing.

The MP range can make scans and copies which sounds very useful. The higher end of that range appears to offers a similar photo printing quality. Specs of for example the MP550 are similar with 9600dpi and photolab quality, but is there anything in the specialised ip4700 that makes it a better photo printer?

watch out for the ink consumption. I have recently been printing out a load of text documents, just plain black text. My IP5200R boasts an extra black ink tank for just that purpose. So imagine my dismay as I watched the coloured ink tanks empty themselves a little bit more with each plain text document printed. That, and the propensity to signal a tank nearly empty ages before it really is, and the annoying habit of not wanting to carry on printing plain text documents if one of the coloured ink tanks is empty, and it all gets very expensive.
