Canon Megatank GI-20 vs GI-290 Inks

While I weigh options for my current dead P600 I am considering downsizing printer footprint to an economical page printer that can do decent photos and use a service for nice or larger prints. Looking at Canon Megatanks and I see two different inks offered based on which model you select. Seems the GI-20 is used on the newer and costlier printers which makes me assume it's better.

Is that in fact true? Anyone know what the real world differences are? Clogging, colors?

Costs seem to be identical as is the number colors so is there some reason to use that to help me choose.

I am leaning toward the G7020 with best optical scanner
