"NX2 - View NX: NEF to JPG"



Using D300 NEF files (12 bit acquisition)
I have performed a NEF to JPG conversion of the same files in NX2 and View NX. In both programs I selected the maximum resolution:
NX2:
In default meta window selected files and then

In View NX:
File Convert Files (not asked about quality)
Selected the maximum

In Capture NX2:
File Save As
Then select JPG format an 100%

The files converted in View NX are of the order of 3500 - 4500 KB
The files converted in Capture NX2 are of the order of 8700 KB

What is the reason for the difference in file size?


Thanks,
Aubrey.
