There was a thread on this in -dev recently, Stucki posted some 
benchmarks and general praise of Graphicsmagick.

It's not strictly about the output quality of IM, but the main issue 
with it was a constantly changing API which resulted in Stucki writing 
wrappers around every version to make it work. And the bug history of IM 
is also rather bad IIRC.

With GM, the API is stable, the software works as expected and seems 
slightly faster.
