    Canon Printers for a fool? a.k.a Canon G series

    Canon seems to have slipping ground with the Epson L series EcoTank etc. But they decided to magically turn single use carts to "CISS -Printheads" by rinning tubes to them. Should I mention the print heads move on bent sheet metal? Not a proper linear guide like old printers? Like EPSON L800...
