You and me both.

I'd expected it after seeing sRAW on the 5D2/ 5D3, but sadly we didn't get it on the D800. A 17MP half-res mode would be perfect.

...downsizing to 12MP after shooting make your raw files smaller? If the camera did a binned sRAW, yes, but otherwise, you're stuck with the 40MB monsters.

Sorry, I see what you mean. I just meant in terms of the eventual output. I would dearly have liked a binning mode on the D800.
