I've just heard* that a PRO-200 is being sent out for one of my reviews.

Whohoo!

If anyone has any specific questions, please do let me know?

IMO the most interesting question is how the supposedly-new black and magenta inks really compare. Supposedly compared to the longstanding ChromaLife 100+ inks in the Pro-100 and many other printers, the black ink produces darker blacks and the magenta expands the gamut. Can either or both of those be detected visually?

This I can't directly answer - it was years ago I last had such a printer here to look at

With measurements associated with profiling or otherwise? Is the new black equally neutral, more so, less so? If you want, I would print you Pro-100 test / comparison prints on (U.S.) standard letter-size (8.5x11 in) Canon papers and mail them to you (PM me if interested).

A good suggestion - I'll let you know - this partly depends on what papers I get and what you've got.

Of course, another question is whether / how these new inks affect fade resistance. But that's more Mark McCormick's area.

Ah yes - something my patience (or that of the house management) doesn't run to testing

Another question is whether there area any print quality or head-strike issues with printing on stiff and thick 'art' papers nearer the top and bottom than the 30mm that the Pro-100 allows.

Paper handling is one of the biggest improvements in the pro-300, I'm expecting similar in the 200.

The old 100 paper margin limitations were to me a massive fail - I'll need to have a good read of my 2014 review though.
