I have tried a shot or two in both Fine and Standard compression. I did not print the results but on the computer screen (22" Mac display) these old eyes did not notice a difference.

Has anyone done any extensive testing in this regard? If so, what were your conclusions?

Fred-

The difference would only be visible in larger prints.

It is easily visible in small areas with A) low contrast and B) moderate to fine detail. The compression tends to blur together areas that have very low contrast. That is how it makes the file smaller. On normal scenes, the difference is not striking.
