Canson Papers

Please talk to me about Canson papers.  I picked up some samples to try out with my Epson R3000 and I'd appreciate input from those who are familiar with the line.

For B&W work, I'm interested in a Baryta paper.  With the one test print I made, I noticed a distinctly warm tonality with the Canson product. The paper does have a smooth satin finish and I think I'm more drawn to a slightly more textured, glossy finish.

For alternatives, I'm also considering Epson's Exhibition Fiber, which is about the same price at Atlex.  I'm also looking into the Hahnemuhle Baryta papers (I know there are three) but the pricing is quite a bit higher.

For color work, I'm interested in a smooth matte, preferably one that is pretty white or neutral. Not sure yet which Canson papers fit what I'm looking for.

Thanks for all input.
