Actually, it's the opposite. Modern monitors usually have smaller pixels, so it's now more difficult to see the differences in demosaicing algorithms without going to higher-than-100% magnifications.

My comment stands.

100% would be enough.

"Would be enough" is very different than what you previously stated - "There's nothing more beyond and below 100%". This makes what you say subjective rather than objective, and in line with this, others could say that for them 50% magnification "would be enough" (or alternatively, they might just use completely different methods to estimate image quality, ones that go beyond human visual scrutiny).

Of course there is nothing beyond 100% of what makes the image what it is. A high enough ppi could potentially force one to zoom in closer but that's not the same thing for the way most of us view and edit our images today, and certainly not a situation affected by the big differences you claim from different raw processing algorithms in use today, because those big differences don't exist.

Besides, the differences between the algorithms used today by the better raw developing apps yield very little difference in detail. I test them all the time. Raw developing is very mature and pretty much maxed out at this point.

Unless something changed significantly in the last year, I'd expect the differences between different demosaicing algorithms to be as easily visible at 400% as the difference between a good lens and and superb lens ...when both are set to optimum aperture

Nothings changed. Your claims of big differences between the raw developers of today simply don't exist.
