Which RAW format for K5?
Apr 11, 2012

I have just taken delivery of a new K5, and would like to shoot in RAW format. Which RAW format do any of you recommend, .PEF or .DNG? I will be processing the files in Iridient Digital's RAW Developer software to TIFF for inkjet printing, and JPEG for commercial lab printing and web display.

I'm used to processing Olympus RAW files, but Olympus doesn't offer the .DNG alternative, and I'm unsure which format on the K5 is considered better, or even what the differences are.

Thank you in advance for your help.
