Well, for starters, if he is going to emphasize atifacts visable with the A7r but not d800e, to the extent that he does, one might expect to see a picture crop from competeing cameras that would highlight these low level posterization artifacts differences.

He does - by pointing you to the RawDigger page, e.g. "Don’t believe me? See this article which describes it better than I can in the limited space of a review."

Instead, he injects this; "It’s been my observation that there aren’t a lot of photographers who have been trained well enough to see small defects like these". OK, me too, show me.

Too lazy to click an extra link?

And then, for balance, show the savings in storage space one would gain using the A7r.

File size varies with the scene.  For the DPR test scene, A7R ARW is 35.5MB, Nikon D800 is 74.3 MB (uncompressed) or 43.6 MB (compressed).
