Re: Resampling..

I think that's to do with the 'quality' of the blurred and downsampled noise. Different cameras and converters produce different styles of noise, and different LPF functions also. In this case, I do like the quality of the raw noise better. Also, you don't get a clear idea of the visual quality of the final product from normal viewing distance from pixel peeping. If the pixels were print size rather than monitor size, you'd be hard pressed to see any difference.
