comment What are the major differences between the NKJV and the ESV translations?
All the major variations within Alexandrian and Byzantine readings are included in the footnotes. The changes I mentioned were where footnoted (mostly Byzantine) readings were moved up to the main text and the other reading were demoted down to the footnotes.

If you have a specific text in mind, I can give you more specific data. Saying "the critical text" is like saying "the printed Greek Bible." Virtually every printed Greek text is a critical edition.

The Nestle-Aland just released their 28th edition. Most of the changes involved throwing more weight to Byzantine readings in the General Epistles. Compared to N-A 27, there are different variants preferred at the following locations: James 1:20; 2:3, 4, 15; 4:10 (now preferring μερει); 1 Peter 1:6, 16; 2:5, 25; 4:16; 5:1, 9, 10; 2 Peter 2:6, 11, 15, 18, 20; 3:6, 10 (preferring ουξ ευρεθησεται), 16, 18; 1 John 1:7; 3:7; 5:10, 18; 2 John 5, 12; 3 John 4; Jude 5 (preferring Ιησους), 18.

I run in scholarly circles. Every critical text of which I am aware takes into account the majority text. The will generally weight results from Alexandrian sources more heavily due to the age, but they certainly don't ignore the Byzantine readings.

Note that the TR or "Received Text" is also a critical text. Erasmus selected the most reliable reading from the MSS he had at his disposal. The ESV simply uses a critical text that has more MSS to consult.
