if you do, for what reason other than to reduce file size?

also, is any information lost during the conversion or not? i mean image information, not metadata etc.

thank you in advance.

No!

THe DNG is static.  As the sensors are evolving, the manufacturers record more (and sometimes NEW) data that is not kept in the DNG....   I LIKE the sidecar file because when IF I delete it, I know I'm truly back to the original data.
