Re: Canon PIXMA PRO-100 Inkjet printer any good?

You should be aware of print life when choosing a printer.

The P-100 uses dye inks, may be Chroma Life, which in dark storage is quite long and behind glass (to prevent gas bleaching) out of direct sunlight can last a few years. Dye inks in the printer are pretty much not subject to clogging over fairly long idle times.

Pigment inks are more archival in nature but are subject to nozzle clogging in extended idle periods. In addition on many print surfaces bronzing can be a problem.

If you are intending to sell prints for minimal protected display you might wish to consider a pigment ink system. The only Canon one I can think of is the 9500 at quite a large price. The less expensive 9000 is a dye ink system.
