I've always wondered why you loose so much in going from NEF to jpeg. I can take a given photo, do nothing to it, and save as a jpeg file and it goes from 15.6mb to about 4.8mb or less-depending on the photo. That seems like a lot of loss to me. If I do any type of pp, there seems to be more loss.

Is this the nature of the beast? I've had messages from Walgreen's that a certain photo I wanted enlarged to 11x14 wasn't suitable for that size because of this sort of thing. the one that comes to mind was one that started out as NEF, did a bit of pp and resized to 11x14 and sent the file to them. Something seems wrong here. I know the D200 is capable of larger even than 11x14.
