I am very picky about prints, usually slightly disappointed with the outcome. With this paper, my jaw almost drops when I see the output from my Canon Pixma 9000 mkii.
I have printed landscapes, seascapes and flowers using this paper, getting pin-sharp rich prints. I'm ordering more and I can't wait to see some portraits on it. It is definitely better than the Pro II paper on my system and I no longer consider using any other gloss or semi-gloss paper for my final prints. I also love Canon's Fine Art Matte for evening shots when a less glossy, chalky romantic look is required.
