I enlarged an M8 photo to 27X40 inches and then cropped out a 4X6  
inch piece for you to look at. You can do a save as from my photo and  
print it as a 4X6 print to see how the resolution looks. I printed it  
on a R1800 and the 4X6 looks great. Here is the crop:



Here is the full size original photo.



Both the crop and the original are jpg conversions from the raw file  
as it came out of the camera. No other post processing.

I hope this helps,
