When I look at the pictures I think the whole time that a am looking at a crop from a tele lens . It has nothing to do with sharpness of contrast but just the total impression. Even with the times square shot. Perhaps it is the wide height scale of the standing pictures.
Nice review. I have used canon and epson printers and the only problem I had was the clotting of the printhead after not using the printer for a few days. It was so bad that in the end I switched from epson to canon. Of course something not mentioned in a test like this but a big spoiler in use I can garantee you.
