Re: Sony RX1 RAW file scandal? An investigative report...
In reply to tesilab, Dec 27, 2012 in their examination states that we are not getting 14 bit files.  They claim that Sony is using a lossy compression schema to convert the 14 bit data to its RAW stored form much like Leica did with the M8.  Why they don't give us the option of having the complete uncompressed RAW file is a mystery but probably to save storage space and maybe to allow the buffer to be smaller and yet responsive. I would certainly prefer that they give us the option to decide whether we want to trade off gradation for space.
