When I'm showing pictures from a trip to friends, I prefer to display the picture on my FullHD 50" TV rather than pass around small prints. In some cases, the picture contains multiple subjects and many interesting details, so I switch to 100% magnification and show specific parts which include details I consider worth focusing on. In practice, I use the same technique people use when pixel peeping (100% magnification), and if image quality is lacking it's tough for me not to notice it, though I don't tend to point to technical shortcomings. Would you call this practice "pixel peeping"?

Hey Prog,

I am guessing, that occasionally, we all do what you describe and this is probably why so many of us on DPR are IQ and pixel noise phobic.
I have 20MP and see no problem with 2:1 digital zoom (5MP). However, at 100% viewing the pixels need to be "clean". To me, clean pixels mean lower ISO and no motion blurring (and of course focused properly)
When viewing the whole frame, I could care less about pixel noise and lens quality. (typically neither can be seen)
