My primary goal in monitor calibration is to achieve best image viewing. I do little image printing. My editing/viewing software is all color managed.

My software calibration choices for gamma are a number (like 2.2), L*, or sRGB. (There is no "Native Gamma" option). Which gamma setting is best?

Again there's not really a "best" but 2.2 should be just fine.

Based on viewing test photos it seem that Gamma=2.2 setting produces an excellent image. I'm just wondering why tests for gamma measurement (Ezio, Lagom) shows that the gamma for my calibrated monitor is closer the 1.4 than 2.2. Wondering why that is.
