small RAW?

I agree that this camera will be a great thing.... wonderful for some of the photographers I know - Ian Brahman, Roman Johnson - that sort of shooter (if they decide to go for it)

For a guy like me shooting Real Estate listings commercially and intermittently ( ie semi pro - now there is high art for you!) 12 mpx is more than enough, and 12 mpx pretty much satisfies any other "urge" I might have as well.

Why does the D800 not have a "small RAW" feature like some of the Canons? (I understand the implications of using less of the smaller pixels on apparent noise)

I also understand one can shoot 1.2 or DX as a substitute with the D800, but a reduced MPX full frame small RAW would have its uses, and maintain the integrity of the full frame field of view.

I read somewhere once that it was actually a patent issue...?
