Sherm,

I am actually getting the best jpgs using ires/izoom these days. Much cleaner and sharper than not using it at all ISO's. However there is still some noise in some shots so using SP5 pro is still the best option. The JPG's with Ires/Izoom clean up nicely if you need any more NR.

Ron,

I'm tending to use iZoom with save Raw+Jpg  as well, Sharp-2, NR-1, and I have no argument about the JPG quality at 24x and below.

On the other hand, the 48x JPGs are terrible - unacceptably full of artifact at 100%....and if you post them, then _somebody's_ going to look at them at 100%.    Sure, the "fair" comparison is to images upsampled on the workstation, but that's a bit like pleading guilty with an explanation.

so I use only the raw files when zoom's over 24x. and toss the jpgs
