Of course.

I think there is some innate drive in people to try to examine a print at as close a distance as possible.

We've been TOLD that we need 240 or 300 dpi to get an acceptable print. There is no doubt that more dpi is better, up to a point, but as far as I'm concerned, when done correctly, 115 can look plenty good for me. Most people I tell don't beleive it until they see if for themselves. Nikon made a big deal a couple years ago about making some gigantic (billboard-size) blowup from a Coolpix 990 shot for the movie "Godzilla".

I use Lanczos exclusively. QImage is a fantastic program, and definitely my preferred NEF converter.
