Harry - maybe this is a bit obvious, but why don't you write to Nikon with
a sample and ask them what they suggest? They may not be the world's best
at customer relations (perhaps because they are trying to avoid a "jaggies"

It seems to be a real problem you have there, and one which may turn out to
be fixable or may be something that Nikon need to look at.
Best of luck,
