When you mention "wider color gamuts are you referring to RAW files (vs JPG)? What do you mean "if you (I) start with a wider color gamut"? Or are you referring to shooting in the Adobe RGB color space vs sRGB?
Is it that much of a hassle to get your prints to look like what you see on your monitor? Assuming both are calibrated using lets say a Colormunki. If it truly is then what are we to do? Just settle for what our recently calibrated photo printer outputs?
