    Coming from a mid-2011 iMac, I was really excited about the potential updates to the screen when I first read rumors about the move from white LED to the red-green phosphor. As a photographer, I hoped/expected that would mean coming closer to the full Adobe RGB color space.

    Looks like the new Retina 5K iMac boasts 100% DCI-P3. A quick check shows that would equal 93.6% of Adobe RGB. Million dollar question is how well these new screens will profile.

    Has anyone seen reviews focusing on the new panels or have any thoughts about this?

    While DCI P3 may be 93.6% of Adobe RGB, Adobe RGB is only 86.98% of DCI P3. Also, we do not yet know how the new iMac displays perform against Adobe RGB gamut (in theory, it could be more than 93.6%), so I wouldn't sweat it until details are released.
