Isn't there also a reduction in file size by archiving and working on DNG master files rather than TIF?

The DNG files created from the tiffs (using lightroom 4.2) are about half the size of the original tiff. I was testing this on some DP2M files a couple of weeks ago.  I decided that if you have the disk space it isn't worth all the extra effort.
