Re: REALLY wanna jump into Sigma, but what about a decent RAW workflow?

I think you're over thinking the 16-bit size issue as an issue.  Export to 16-bit TIFF, do your processing and THEN you can feel free to save to 8bit.  The issue working with 8bit files is the limited amount of data available;  so do your working in 16-bit and then save as 8 bit.   So, "HD space" is just an issue for whatever amount you have coming out of just 1 shoot -- if this is in itself an issue, not sure what I can tell you.
