Post processing really made the cropped D800 shine. I couldn't get the V1 to sharpen any good and Lightroom's noise reduction made the V1 postcard like waxy. So I liked the PPed D800 the best.

I'm asking for help with V1 PP in the Nikon1 forum. But haven't got any tips yet.

Here's the original D800 shot at 1600max. The cropped shot is 3.06mp while the full shot is 20.9mp. So I'm thinking I can get 7 better D800 photos for every V1. LOL

I don't understand.  The cropped shot is 3 MP and the full shot is 21 MP?  But the D800 is 36 MP.  What do you mean "the full shot is 20.9mp"?
