I recently resized some NEF files from my D40 to 4000 x 6016 (24 MP) NEF files. They were all enhanced with the four standard options in the resize menu then saved as max quality .jpg files. Results looked much sharper and cleaner than the orignial 6 MP file sizes in both NEF and .jpg types.

Has anyone done any tests or experiments doing this?
