Hi Roland

I'm not really into "zooming" in to see the detail (apart from when testing) as I see the whole point of an ("art") photograph to be the overall composition rather than the detail.

Hence the importance of the print to me (and a "stood back" viewing position).  But, yes, as you say, if panning and zooming around an electronic image is what one wants to do, the more resolution the better.

Those Russians are into hi res stuff.

Hmmm ... maybe its been linked to earlier in this forum. Or maybe it was in Pentax, I dont remember.

But ... its worth a visit.
