Help me think : Epson 4880 died now: P800 or P5000 / 5070 ?

Hi folks - after a long service my Epson Stylus Pro 4880 died - the magenta channel is totally dead. A new print head costs around $1000 and the printer sounds well ... a little worn.
I print small panoramas at the full width of a roll - sometimes large panoramas (the longest ever was 3 meters) but the long panoramas are not all that important in volume.
My biggest volumes are greeting cards on A4 stock 320 gsm Ilford semigloss and Mini prints at full width of the 17 inch roll on Ilford metallic Gloss.
I am hovering between the Epson P800 and the Epson P5000 / 5070 (same printer but with different type numbers).
I have to stick to Epson as I have invested in Mirage Print software.
Any thoughts based on real experiences -not assumptions- would be much appreciated.
thanks in advance !
