I could be wrong here, but I am sure I seem to remember reading that the Sony can only shoot JPG or lossy compressed RAW ?

No one knows if it is lossy. Files are smaller thank nikon using the same sensor but quality is not worse. In the end if the difference cannot be determined and quality does not suffer then who cares? Quality is still better than Fuji;-)

This is like the film 'Ghost': "...they see what they want to see..."!

The worst person to give an opinion on any given camera/lens is one that's just spent a wheelbarrow full of their own money on one IMO.

I too read the A7 test which mentions RAW files captured at 14 bits but the file recorded appears to use around 11 bits so Sony are binning RAW information! Surely that's going to hurt the ability to recover highlight and shadow information in PP? I won't even mention the jpeg processing....


Do you have any proof in terms of test result or comparison to nikon using the same sensor or it is another urban legend?
