Re: Two more..

Unless we are talking about printing images with a lot of artificially saturated colors, most the colors good dye inks will produce exclusively won't be used anyway. Otherwise, those ones pigments produce exclusively (saturated shadows) are much more useful for natural world reproduction. Another huge advantage of pigments is their (much) lower color inconstancy, even if we compare them to the last dye ink technology like Canon ChromaLife 100+.

My explanation to the fact the reported dye-based printer produces more punch, more vivid prints is that probably Epson built a biased profile to satisfy the common people preferences. If the vivid/punch image is needed, I would rather work on the image than expect the printer to do this unpredictable job by its own.
