Again, you're misunderstanding how this works. There is no direct transfer of RAW data into image data. In fact, the demosaicing process could create image data at 32 or 48 bits per channel. The RAW data is itself transformed by its neighboring RAW data, and then transformed again to a color space that has values with no relationship to the original RAW data.

Ok, I take it back.

You are smarter than you sounded, but that still does not explain why the D7000 posterizes in extreme push situations when in 12 bit mode vs the 14 bit mode. The demosaics do not simply fill in the blanks so to speak.
I'm off to bed now, looking forward to tomorrow....after work.
