Your comment about your final destination got me tinkling...would/will galleries have screens on the walls instead of prints?  If they did use screens would they use a 4K?

I couldn't care less about 10bit and wide gamut is over-rated.

The two important things for me are viewing angle and screen uniformity.

For the former, an IPS screen is required. For the latter, a screen made by Eizo or Nec.

The resolution of 4K screens is impressive, but its an evolutionary rather than revolutionary development. 3840 pixels instead of 2560 pixels.

If the monitor screen was the final destination for my photography, I'd buy a 4k screen straight away. But my work is destined for print (editorial/gallery), and for the time being I'm quite content retouching on my 27" Eizo.
