    The 'best' print size, is the one that fits what YOU want.

    You could easily make prints that are 30" x 20" and if your images are sharp enough, they will likely look good. Just keep in mind that you're not supposed to view a large print from close up. While standing back at a proper viewing distance, they should look good.

    So you could make an 8x10, 11x14 etc. without much trouble.

    Check out www.mpix.com for on-line printing.

    My favorite is 8x10. That is what I make the most of on my D40.
