First off, thank you for actually looking at the RAWs...

After playing with your raws, I really can't see any significant difference at all. I think it's all in how you got from your raws to your 1800x1200 jpegs.

...before forming an opinion. If you are suggesting I did it wrong, I would be very interested in your technique. I would then re-conduct the procedure. I am not above learning.

And yes, I've got to believe you are way into the "diminishing returns" at this amount of downsizing.

Thank you again. I do not see what is so hard for some to come out and agree with the outcome. I believe there are more than a few D800 owners who were oblivious to this. In fact, I think there are some of those folks posting here today that are posing as "previously-informed" but in reality just got a big jolt.

If you end up with "less" when starting out with "more" then it's on you.

Is this a reference to my characterization "reversal of return"? If so, I will repeat that I would be very interested in a workflow that avoids this when working with files of this size. If you are inclined to answer but would like to avoid the mindless criticisms others might dump on you, please shoot me a line privately.
