And what "monitor" on the market has such a resolution? I know of none.

1920x1200 is pretty common and close to 2.4MP

1920x1200 monitors are no longer "pretty common." They are actually rare now. It is also not a 2.4MP monitor, which is no surprise considering there is no such a thing as a 2.4MP monitor.

I read the original post about 2.4MP and compared that to my monitors and said to myself, "OK, I know what he is referring to." Then I read further and saw that he was saying that displaying a photo with more megapixels on a monitor with less megapixels would result in averaging and thus obscure the potential benefit of an ultra-expensive, ultra-sharp lens. So My takeaway was, ok, let's think about that one.

Your takeaway was gosh darn, there ain't no monitor out there with a resolution of exactly 2.4MP and the universe as we now know it will come to an end if this error is not rectified immediately.

You can have your take on it. I prefer mine.

edispics,

Thank you.
You obviously understood what I was trying to say in my original post. Indeed my arithmetic was deficient since 1920x1200 is closer to 2.3MP than 2.4MP but I simply think of my monitor as 2K by 1.2K
