Sam,

I May be able to do some crops of larger sizes...I'll be busy this week at work and may not get on the home desktop for a few days though, which is where the originals are stored.

I'm not quite as useful for the super-pixel-peepers since I shoot predominantly in JPG, and these shots were my first experiments as to the settings to use...plus a few flubs on the shutter speeds as I mentioned, which cost me a few shots through no fault of the camera.

My typical preference with JPGs is to lower sharpness in camera, letting them be a little softer - because the one editing phase I do almost always is to crop, and often resize, for optimal printing.  This tends to work better when the shots are slightly softer out of camera, so I can apply my own sharpening after the fact, and do it selectively.  So as a caveat, remember that my 100% crops, especially with a 24MP sensor, will probably be on the softer side compared to some others who go for maximum crispness or sharpness out of camera, or those who present a processed RAW with all processing applied.
