Re: Please define "pixel peeping".

So I shouldn't be worried that when comparing images from my 8 year old KM7D (6MP) and a new Nikon D7100 (24MP) at 100% each, the images from the KM7D appear sharper?

When I view each image shrunk down to the monitor's native resolution isn't detail (quite a lot in the case of a 6000x4000 image) eliminated? With both pictures filling the monitor's screen they look similar, maybe with the D7100 a little softer, but at 100% the difference is huge. I expected more from the D7100 and I am starting to have second thoughts. Or maybe I forgot to remove the protective film Nikon placed over the sensor?
