Hi Joey. Extensive testing by myself and other pros have determined that there is no advantage to "stairstepping" - in fact often the results are worse.

Do you have a reference on where I can read up on this extensive testing (If you are a pro I assume you have some record of this)? Because I couldn't have gotten the results on the picture above in a one-step reduction. If you think it is possible under the given conditions (Photoshop bicubic filter only, no pre-blurring and no post-sharpening, endresult should be 800x1200) you are welcome to prove me wrong.

If you are trying to say that it is not a 'standard procedure', that's true. Some pictures benefit from it (in my experience) others don't.
