Graham Lacdao: That would be amazing if Sony could implement an option for uncompressed RAW and in different resolution like Canon.

I was originally shooting with Nikon and Canon body's for ages until I made the move to shooting Sony. The View finder on the a99 just blew me away with the amount of Live View information it was displaying and at the time I was shooting with a Nikon D3 and D700.

With my Nikon's I would always shoot 12bit compressed RAW when doing event photography. My main concern was mixed lighting and we all know that you can white balance a RAW much better than a JPG.

When it came to Landscape/Architecture by default I would set my Nikon's to 14bit uncompressed as I need to pull as much shadow/highlight, tone and colour detail into one RAW which was shot at ISO100 camera on a tripod. That option gave me just that little bit more to play with when editing.

So to sum it up for me 12bit compressed for Event Photograph and 14bit uncompressed for absolute editing leeway.

True but I'd only use 14-bit RAW on some shoots i.e. ISO100 on a tripod landscape/Architecture stuff when you need pixel peeping critical images so FPS is not a priority.

With event/wedding photography I've been happy all along shooting compressed RAW. (It might change we'll see)

Either way it nice to have the option.

I've had to adapt my shooting style to fit with some quirks of the mirrorless Sony A7's and I always upgrade my bodies/lenses with the latest firmware. I hardly notice blackouts.

Brilliant Sony is bringing out uncompressed RAW 😃😃😃

Brilliant!! Although it's a been long time coming I've actually got used to manual focus without focus peaking for pro use. They could always bring back the in body focus motor to keep the lens size down, but I'm not one to complain as I think these lenses are awesome. Love to see an AF version of the Voigtlander 35mm f1.2, this lens is amazing with my A7s and the size is small compared to the CZ 34mm f1.4

3dreal: f1.8 APSC=the same lightgathering like f2.7 on FF.
so comparing both formats at iso 100 and 1/30 apsc-lens at 2.7 shows darker image than ff-lens at 2.7? i dont get it. discussed here endlessly.
that would mean an external lightmeter must be recalibrated whe switching from FF to aps-c? very strange. fstops- no matter on which formats are all the same in relation to Evs.

f1.8 APSC=the same DOF like a f2.7 on FF
Light gathering of a f1.8 lens is always f1.8
