Re: But what's this blog ref. to do with the question at hand?

The 8750 will have perfect B&W out of the box. The 2200 is capable of pretty good B&W, but will require alot of calibrating, and sometimes reprints to get perfect results.

The longevity and water-resistant pigment ink of the 2200 is pretty nice though. However, are your large prints going to get handled alot? I know for me that almost all of my large prints get framed behind glass, which protects them from handling issues and moisture, plus helps with print longevity. I find that the handling and moisture issue is really only an issue for 4x6's and 5x7's.
