So are you saying that if I have my 20/1.7 lens on in A mode with it set down at 1.7 for a shallow depth of field, all that gets ignored in the RAW file?

No, no, no Noah. (Sorry, that was just too much fun...)

When shooting RAW, your camera settings such as white balance, sharpening, contrast, shooting mode ("portrait" etc) are ignored. However, your shutter speed, ISO,  aperture , and focus are unaffected. 1.7 is still 1.7.  And yes, buy more memory.  I agree with the previous suggestions of shooting RAW+jpg. Jumping into RAW without a jpg backup could be a problem for you.

Happy shooting!
