I have finally purchased a box of the Luster paper and think it is great. I love the Canon Semi Gloss paper Canon Photo Paper Plus Semi-Gloss 13" x 19" (50 Sheets) (SG-201 13X19) and I see little difference between the two. Since I think Semi Gloss is five stars, I give this paper the same rating.

I have attached an image to this review. (Reducing its resolution and making it a jpg makes it a little sucky but that's life on Amazon.) The image has a good range of colors and deep blacks with some details that are just visible. I used a handheld magnifier and one of those large desk-mounted magnifiers with built-in light ring to examine the two prints: one on Semi Gloss and the other on Luster, both 13x19 and made on my Pro9500 Mark II.

My conclusions after examination are 1) whiteness, texture, and sheen of the two papers are virtually the same but see below, 2) colors are virtually the same, 3) details in highlights are virtually the same, 4) depth of black areas are virtually the same, and 5) discernible details in black areas are virtually the same. When I say "virtually the same" I mean identical to me but I admit that there may be some differences that have escaped me or might be more visible using a different printer. [By the way, the word "Canon" is printed on the back of Semi Gloss but not on Luster. This is fortunate since otherwise I would believe I had made the two prints on the same paper.]

I'm not likely to buy much of this paper unless the price falls to match or better the Semi Gloss. Since I can't see any difference, I'll buy the less expensive.

I find this paper to be very close to Canon's Photo Paper Pro Semi-Gloss. Looking at two printings of the same image, one on this Luster and the other on Canon Semi-Gloss, it is really difficult to notice which one is which. The differences are there, but they are subtle and will likely not be noticeable without careful scrutiny. IMHO, hanging in a frame, 99% of people will not note any differences between the papers whatsoever. The back of the paper is where you can easily tell because the Semi-Gloss has the Canon logo all over it, while the Luster has nothing printed on the back.

The texture of the Luster paper is slightly more pronounced than the texture of the Semi-Gloss. Emphasis on "slightly." Examining one of each blank sheet closely side-by-side is more revealing of any differences than after they have been printed on. The whiteness and tone of the papers look the same to me. Neither is warmer or cooler than the other.

I've uploaded some pics of the papers to compare. The first two pictures, each showing only one type of paper close up, have been adjusted in Photoshop so that the highlights are boosted 33% to better show off the surface texture. The rest of the pics have not had any adjustments made to them.

Pros: The quality of this product is every bit as good as Canon Semi-Gloss. I like the fact that the Luster doesn't have Canon's logo all over the back like other Canon papers. This is more in line with higher-end brand papers made for professional artwork, e.g., Hahnemuehle, Ilford, Red River, Moab, Inkpress, Innova, etc. In fact, this Canon Luster is actually manufactured by Hahnemuehle.

Cons: It isn't different enough from the Semi-Gloss to be worth it, to me. Also, the Luster paper lacks the sturdy and convenient flip-up container that comes with other Canon stock. This is a very minor complaint and further illustrates how little difference I can find between the two.

I'm a photographer and I used this paper for my portfolio prints. I didn't scrutinize with a magnifying glass like some of the others, but I can tell you that this is good paper. You get what you pay for and this certainly isn't anything mind blowing, but It's just as good as the other brands at this price point. Most people will never even notice the difference between this paper and a high-end luster paper that costs 3 times as much; especially clients. Probably only other photographers.

Canon Luster photo paper is a good improvement over the semi-gloss paper. Colors are richer, prints "pop" more, and as expected no annoying glare.
Expensive though.

I was going to order the high end glossy paper since I have always liked the glossy look on photos but
decided to try luster. I was amazed at the quality of the prints and the way the colors pop out. If you
want your pictures to look better than the lab ones give this paper a try, especially if you have a Canon
Pro series printer. I have a Canon Pro 9000 Mark II and the prints are amazing. I don't think I would go
back to glossy unless I do landscapes so I can have slight whiter whites like on the Pro Platinum.

This paper is pricey but the pictures look fantastic. I print on the Canon Luster paper using a Canon Pixma Pro 100 printer using a Canon Supplied printer profile.

If you are considering this paper you might also want to consider Red River Paper.

This paper is amazing. I use with with our Canon Pixma 100 printer and it is mind blowing how good the quality of the prints are. It's got the feel of a matt photo paper but is somehow even better looking and higher quality feeling to the touch. Soaks up the ink and dries very quickly.
