That squares with what I've seen. Even a 16x20 print, it's not easy telling 16 from 24mp. And who stands 12" away from a print like that when it's displayed?

I find when I exhibit prints in a gallery, the viewers look at them from a distance, then from up close, and again from a distance.

This is my experience and also how I view prints in a gallery. However, "up close" is typically 1-2 feet, not 3 inches, and I've never seen a visitor bring a 4x loupe.
