That stonking big 4K TV you bought for your photos

I don’t have a 4K TV, but I do have a 5K iMac, that I purchased three or so years ago. My observations:

  • When I first got the iMac, I started getting severe headaches while using the computer. My eyeglass prescription is old, but I did have some computer glasses that I hardly ever used before; these worked well with my computer but I did have to move it closer that I had ever used a computer before. My headaches went away. 
  • Even at the new closer distance, I cannot perceive the monitor pixels. Typically, I set the zoom to 200 or 300% when I pixel peep.
  • If I zoom to 100%, I can see the entirety of the images from my older cameras, and most of my images from my newest.
  • Lens quality differences have become painfully obvious now.
