The NEX-7 uses an in-camera data-compression scheme that (effectively) transforms the base of the bits of it's RAW files to a base other than base 2 (making your fantasies come true in a sense). However, those compressed and specially encoded RAW image-files have to be specifcally decoded by an inverse decoding algorithm in order to be read . Note that this is not the case where it comes to the EM-5 of your dreams, so perhaps you need to come up with a new fantasy theory ?

How about a theory that the EM-5 contains 14-bit ADC ? That would (at least) be ... possible ..
