Phil,

I think it goes like this:

The K-5 models have a 640x480 RGB screen (4:3) but vendors count each color pixel by itself:

640x480 x 3 = 921 600

Now the 3:2 image uses the long side horizontally:

4928 imager pixels / 640 screen pixels = 7.7

So right, the closest magnification is 8 (or is it just called 8 and it is 7.7 instead?)
