    I am looking for a external monitor that I can use with both my 2015 iMac 5k and the new mbp.

    Happy to buy all the adapters in the world as long as everything works.

    Considering
    Dell 5k
    LG 38uc99
    LG 5k ultrafine

    Would be grateful for any advice including which adapters and cables I need to make it work

    not sure about the rest but your imac definitely cannot drive the 5k ultrafine since its TB3 only.

    Thanks for your answer.
    Just for clarification: not even with a TB3 <-> TB 2 dongle?

    Thanks

    your TB2 imac cannot power any TB3 devices, a dongle won't change anything.
