44-inch Canon PROGRAF PRO-4000 vs. Epson SC-P9000

My 44-inch HP Z3100 is no more (anyone want it for parts?)

I'm plan to replace the Z with a new 44-inch offering, either the Canon PROGRAF PRO-4000 or the Epson SureColor P9000. Both products are relatively new. I print on an assortment of media, including  fine-art cotton rag, luster, matte, and canvas. I print on both rolls and sheets.

Any thoughts on the comparison, features, benefits, and disadvantages of either?

I'm aware the Epson P9000, like its predecessors, still does PK/MK switching, a wasteful process. With separate channels for PK and MK ink, neither the Canon nor the HP resort to this. I don't necessarily see that as a fatal flaw in the Epson. Thanks for your input.
