Easy to separate other photographers from potential buyers at the galleries: the photographers have their faces close to the prints looking at the details, and potential buyers are standing back looking at the whole image!

not just photographers---painters with paintings and sculptors with sculptures, too.  I take close focus binoculars with me to museums.  I get some weird looks, but I'm fixin to buy these : http://www.johnmuirlaws.com/store/pentax-papilio-close-focus-8-5x21-binoculars
