I've profiled Epson OEM ink and MIS ink on Concrode Rag with EZcolor. The target print from the MIS ink is very close to the Epson ink's target print. When compared side by side, the Epson black's are a little deeper. And the red's are alittle more "rich". But I certainly wouldn't call the MIS color's weak. And when printing a photograph, I've been very impressed. Now mind you, I shoot portraits. I'm not shooting a lot of vivid colors. But if I was, I've seen nothing that would lead me to believe the results would be disapointing. -- Mike Greer Come visit my web site on digital photography and other interesting topics at http://www.greer.simplenet.com .
