The voting format (only vote your top 8, anything below that can be written off) is designed in part to help deal with larger lists of candidates.

The benefit to more candidates earlier of course is the ability to fix "mistakes" on the aggregate list that was put together without detailed discussion of players.
Honestly, I think it would be best if the admins consulted each other and came to a decision. Without seeing the Round 1 results, knowing the potential "mistake" candidates we're talking about, and knowing where the natural breaks lie... the rest of us are making a more or less arbitrary judgment whether it would be better to have more candidates.

The variables in this situation are so specific, I'd think you already have in mind what the pros and cons would be. You're in the best position to make an informed decision here.
