This is actually an interesting lead-in to some of my questions about print judgement and fractional gradient speeds. How were these print evaluation studies actually carried out? What was the subject matter? Who made the prints? Were there experimental limitations places on the printers? Who were the people looking at the prints? What specific feedback was solicited? Etc Etc.

I guess the thing I keep coming back to here is, we seem to have a situation in which we are asked to accept the evaluation of some group of people. What are their standards? Etc...
