Wow... I'll take your word for it. So, help me out here. Does that explain why the 14-bit A99 files are the same size as the 12-bit A77 files?

I can only say that it would be rather easy to widen the a77 compression scheme from 12 to 14 bit without changing the quantity of standard values. You will simply have to round a little more so you throw more values away. That would give the same resulting file size.

But I don't know anything about the compression scheme in the a99.
