Wow, the hits keep coming! Amazing since it's a APS-C sensor camera too!
I have been using this printer for 4 years and probably have printed 80+ full size prints (13x19) and it's been bullet proof. It's output meets or exceeds what I get from any of the higher quality online shops and I save a lot. I get 45-48 full size prints per ink cartridges which I can find for $85., sometimes a bit less. I've used generic ink, but I prefer the genuine Canon ink. If you don't want/need the printer, you can sell it on Craigslist easily for $150. and some markets more.

eBay deals from various sellers. Also sign up for Canon emails as they offer 20%-30% off codes often and often include free paper.

This printer is the best in its class. If you want a better printer, you will pay over $1,000 more and will pass out when you find the ink replacement costs for those better printers.

This is good ink and good paper, if you're serious about printing this is the right way to go. This printer usually comes with full ink tanks, but some ink is wasted in "charging" the unit for first time use. I buy the full ink replacement kit 1-2x per year at over $100 each for Canon inks, depending on how much I print. I wouldn't trust 3rd party or "non-OEM" inks for this unit. If you're going to use garbage inks then don't buy a nice printer.

So now for the elephant in the room. Don't get a nice printer if you're not serious about printing. To use a good photo printer like this you will learn about "color profiling" and "soft proofing". If you're not interested or able to do both - then don't get a photo printer.

I have found that learning about printing has taken a significant investment in time and is probably more complex than mastering exposure, metering, and focus. It pays off though. Like anything worth doing once you learn you'll have beautiful prints you'll be extremely proud of.

TL;DR - if you just want a plug and play printer to send unedited JPEGs to, then spend your money elsewhere.

I totally agree. I own all 3 canon pancake lens. EF-M 22mm f/2 image performance is really good. Canon Refurbished cost $159. Now have 10% off with email sign up. sorry, It is out of stock now. if you have EF lens. you can buy canon or 3rd party adapter on all EOS M camera.

I've heard that mail in rebates can be a huge pain sometimes, has anyone here claimed a MIR from Canon before? How long did it take, and were there any issues?

Twice, no issues whatsoever. Couple weeks maybe.
