You can't count on anyone else to have a wide gamut monitor, so it's always seemed to me that they're only suitable for hermits.

That's pretty funny and I agree with you to a good extent. I don't think any of the friends or relatives I share my images with have a wide-gamut display.

However... wide-gamut displays do make sense for those who focus on print media and have wide-gamut printers. That's probably not a tiny number of pro and serious-amateur photographers.

What about looking at your own images on screen??

Plus most of the better monitors are wide gamut these days anyway.

And the only reason a large majority of photographers don't have wide gamut is attitudes like this.

People use to go crazy about K64 vs Fujichrome and this and that color and no it's like nobody cares about actually viewing images.

People go crazy over every DxO mark sensor spec and then 60% sRGB vs 167% sRGB, who cares.
