If the RAW files are being massaged, then all bets are off. In the compare experiment I showed in a post below ( http://forums.dpreview.com/forums/read.asp?forum=1041&message=37799085 ), I looked more closely at ISO 640 and ISO 2500 histograms. There's definitely something a little funny in the latter. There seem to be some unexpected additional gaps in the 2500 histogram, and it also looks a little smoother than I expected. The gaps might possibly be due to the way the lossy RW2 compression works. But I can't understand the smoothing. Or maybe it's that the 640 histogram is rougher than expected? Who knows...
