Viewing at 100% is not really of much value aside from clinical inspection or closely monitoring the effect of things like sharpening operations. You can't actually see the whole photograph at 100% unless you have a monitor that is something like 5 feet across with computer monitor resolution.
Sharpness and resolution at 100% is only meaningful to the extent that it relates to sharpness at the sizes you will actually display.
Dan -- This is of course strictly your opinion and has no basis in objective facts. You are welcome to that opinion, and I'm sure many people share it, but I'm not one of them. If I could look at 1000% with no raster edges and minute details, I'd like that option and more. It as much value to me, although I'll admit it's an arbitrary opinion I hold.
That is fine for some sort of technical inspection of your photograph, but it is useless for actually viewing it as a photograph since you cannot see the whole image!
I have tried almost every camera out there, Canon, Nikon, Olympus and Sony, but I went back to the Canon 5D classic. The SOOC are just so amazing to me...and paired with the 50mm 1.4 is heavenly
I've shot digital for quite some time, and I have to tell you that nothing matches the output of my 640 KP (kilo-pixel) first-generation Apple QuickTake camera. It has all been downhill since then...
Meanwhile, back in the real world. I still carry around my 5D as a second/backup body, and I make prints from photographs made with that camera. It was and is a fine camera. However, if the 5D actually produced better photographs than my 5D2 in any way, shape, or form... I would use it instead of the 5D2 since I often have both of them with me.
I haven't. Not once.
