Lightfastness of Epson Eco-tank printer inks

There are now eco-tank printers with a photo black ink added to the normal 4-color set, but these printers are heavier and about 50% more expensive than the standard 4-color eco-tank printers. I plan to get an eco-tank printer for my normal non-photo printing needs, which are things where color fastness for more than a year is not important. Are the inks in these printers lightfast enough to make getting the photo black version worth it, or do the inks fade and change color relatively quickly if exposed to light without protection like those in the other 4-color Epson printers I have used in the past?
