I was lucky enough to get my D800 yesterday, and now I'm looking for a "best practice" solution to downsample the raw (NEF) images that I import into Lightroom from my D800. My normal workflow is to import and backup the NEF images from my DSLR, and only create PSD copies for those photos that merit retouching. I find the D800 photos are roughly 2.5 times larger than the ones from my D7000, and I don't always need the extra resolution. Often I'd just like to downsample the D800 images to get better S/N and save space on my hard drives. Has anyone found a good way to do this?

- Thanks in advance, Jim
