Like moths to a flame, photographers to a test chart.
I'm not using that as a test chart... it moves around when you look at it!!

That IS the question.
Some sits there looking at their pics in 100% and over and worries.

I'm horrified - this disease can not be good in the long run!
For me It seems to be another hobby!
Why not start a special subject on the forum : "The Pixelpeepers club:" (I'm serious.)
Could be fun following their hobby!

We are making photos - aren't we - and uses whatever camera we have in hand?

OK - in the wet darkroom some sat there with the focusing magnifier and admired the grain and never got cured.
I was one of them - however now happily cured. That - because I got rid of my wet darkroom.
You should cross-post your thread in another one (don't recall where) where it goes in great details in trying to identify the difference between the K-1 and the K-1II.
Lots of pixel peeping in there !

I've looked up for a cure and this: ICD-10 Chapter V: Mental and behavioural disorders - Wikipedia did not provide information on such cure.

Real pixel peepers use scanning tunneling electron microscopes. Only resolution of their pet cat's whiskers at the atomic scale will do.

There was a thread about an über sharp picture elsewhere on the forum; that could be included as well.
