I often view images at 100% simply in order to get a close look at something, e.g., a couple of days ago I photographed an ocean scene and viewed it at 100% in order to see the people on a yacht. People may not print billboards, but many crop images and thus print just a part of the photo. That can make the 100% view highly relevant.

Sorry, cropping to 100% will get you a poor outcome no matter what camera. If you're taking photos to crop to 100%, you're either composing your photos wrong or you need longer glass.

So if someone takes a landscape photo and wants to zoom in on the details, the photo is not composed right?

Why do you have a 24 MP camera if you are viewing photos at no higher of a resolution than ~6MP at best?
