I wouldn't necessarily disagree that a RAW High ISO image shot at M is better than L due to the camera's binning. It also appears the camera does a bit of work on those 6Mp RAW files before writing them, I wonder if that affects sharpening. I'd be curious to see how the 'best' processed RAW L file down-sized to 6Mp compares...

It doesn't compare at all ... that wa sthe point of my test.

And when shoo9ting L size for DR400, it gets worse. As shown in part 17 of my tests ...

My issue is that 99% of the time I will be shooting RAW only, which means full size RAW files only. I simply want my High-ISO, L size RAW files to be as 'good' as my OOC JPGs when it comes to NR and details.

Take a look at my low ISO tests ... I will be shooting RAW+JPG ffrom now on and just deleting the JPGs ...

It appears Adobe is also looking more into how processing is done -

Cool ... maybe the L sized RAWs can be better ... and maybe they can address that nasty Moire in the M sized RAWs ... it can be visible under the right circumstances ...
