I think everyone can easily see the difference between 576, 720 and 1080, the difference between 2160 (4K) and 4320 (8K) will be just as easy and satisfying to most people without cataracts. The prices will be just as affordable a year or two in as current tech too, don't worry about that. Tech evolves allllll the time.
Vive la revolution! (very slowly over the next 5 years)
Its not quite the same with 4K/8K. For the human eye to detect any difference in the pictures at standard viewing distance, the screen have to be very large (60"+). So anyone with a 40" TV wouldn't be able to see any noticeable difference.
It'll be years before 4K/8K reaches the same level as 1080p.
I already have a massive one and my TV is 50" too, boom tish.
TV's are cheap as chips, I am a bit more of a brand snob, but you can get a 50" LG for £500, 4K and 8K TV's will be just as cheap in their product lifecycle timeframe and the sizes of TV's have slowly got larger as the years have gone by at the same time as the prices have tumbled.
You can buy a 56" Toshiba 4K TV today for £6,999 from John Lewis (in stock) and JL are not cheap, too much now but not horrendously so, but in a year it will be £4,000 and tumble tumble just like HD, Full HD and 3D have done before it. They will be £2,000 in a couple of years, the same kind of price curve as previous new tech.
Keep calm and embrace the future.
