Re: Mostly agree, except...

On X-Fine vs Fine, make the comparison based on jpeg only shots.
Sony has said the Fine shot with RAW is a preview shot.


I wrote this above, but it may get lost in the thread, so I'll repeat it here:

"...Where does it say that the jpeg is a 'preview' rather than 'production' jpeg? What do these terms even mean?

I just took two shots. One cRAW+jpeg and one Fine jpeg. The 2 jpegs were identical in size (9.52MB). This suggests that they are being processed within camera in the same way (ie same compression). Try it yourself. "
