Re: Which is more economical on inks? Epson/Canon

Let me shift the question slightly. Say I want to print black & white images primarily. Both the Epson and Canon have multiple black and grey ink tanks. I understand that you can replace one or two of the color cartridges with additional greys to get even better tonal rendition.

Does that still tilt the cost balance in favor of Epson? And would the per-print cost be about the same as for color images?
