I understand the pigment-based ink is better for longevity, just researching whether it's worth spending more for the 9500. I like the idea of printing b&w, as it's less than 10% of my output but important nonetheless. If the color printing of the 9500 is stunning as you say (and I believe you), then the added benefit of better b&w printing by the 9500 makes it the way to go for me.
Thanks for your response!
I took advantage of the rebate at B&H and bought the 9500 for Christmas. I bought it mainly for the true B&W capability, which is remarkable. I've been bowled over by the color rendition as well. I'm still evaluating paper and tweaking my technique, but the printer was spot on out of the box.
With the rebate, I think it's a bargain. I figured it had a rebate to clear it out for an update and sure enough I found out they were releasing a new model. At first I kind of wished I'd waited and got the new one with 12 instead of 10 carts which have extra ink capacity, but now I'm reading the new carts will run nearly twice as much so there will be little savings in ink costs.
