I would have expected the main differences to be as follows:

24-inch iMac - Matte IPS screen; lower resolution than the others.

27-inch iMac (2012) - Glossy IPS screen, reduced reflectivity compared to 2009 - 2011 iMac screens, 27-inch Apple Cinema Display screen, and 27-inch Thunderbolt screen

27-inch Thunderbolt Display - Glossy IPS screen comparable to 2009-2011 27-inch iMac screens.  (I don't recall any "blue tint" complaints about the iMacs, though there were some "yellow tint" ones.)

Note that there is a significant difference in the construction of the 2011 and 2012 iMac screens, so your in-store impressions of the 2012 iMac (esp. re: gloss) may not carry over to the 2011 one.
