The 100% viewing of high pixel count cameras (such on 24mp) is not the only and last possible way of finding out best image quality.

Of course it is. There's nothing more beyond and below 100%.

Like i said before, you don't get the full image and therefore some other issues are missed out.

That would depend on the pixel density of your monitor. With a 2MP monitor I can see the entire image at 100% on my iPad.

Are you taking 2mp images?

It's simply a truthful example, and one that's becoming more and more important as monitor resolutions keep increasing. With my 27" iMac I can see over 50% of my images from my Sigma camera. Lenovo just recently announced the first 4K (8.3MP) all in one computer.. At the CES show going on another company has an 8K display being teased, which is 33MP.

That said, the viewing of an image at 100% with most monitors is to determine the quality of the finest detail, not to evaluate the entire image for content and composition. That's apples and oranges.

It is like watching atoms and saying what looks best.

That's an awfully silly comparison when we are talking about magnification. Viewing a digital image at 100% shows something that one can make out to be greater than itself, not so when "watching atoms."

If here is someone ignorant, thab that is you.

You haven't proven it yet.

I'm also not the one comparing atoms to pixels.

You claim for something, we do and that is good this way.

I don't know what you are saying.

But we should respect the other. Saying the opposite does not make it right.

I have not shown anyone disrespect. Saying something that is correct and "opposite" to what someone else says is "right."

And again, i am not against 100% view. But it is not the only tool judging image quality.

For ultimate quality, yes it is. You could make a huge print but that is a reproduction stage that introduces other variables that affect image quality.
