Pixel peeping has been around for a few years, but what is it exactly?
Why do we accept not to discuss some issues of our cameras, but focus on others?
Why are we sometimes willing to invest in top of the notch next generation digital equipment, but do not necessarily bother evaluating how much we have gained compared to what we used before? Are these gains not inherently of pixel peeing nature?
Should relevant camera image quality evaluation focus on colors, noise and DR, but put less emphasis on image uniformity, absence/presence of painterly effect on small details,...?
In other words, where does pixel peeping start? Considering the very high level of performance already achieved by digital cameras, does it still make sense to discuss camera's image quality without turning into pixel peepers?
