Default Advice, please!

Our editorial department is working with a design consultant on a redesign of our newspaper. The consultant is pushing Georgia as a body face, at 9.3 over 10.2. (I have NO idea why that size and leading).

I find Georgia hard on my eyes and am concerned it will darken too much on newsprint. The majority of our subscribers are 50 and older...

How do others feel about it? What body copy font would you recommend?

We have Adobe Font Folio 11 (Opentype). We are currently using Minion 10 over 10.7 for body text, but change is apparently desirable.

I plan on running a press test of four or eight pages to "compare and contrast".
