r17 display value

Getting 17 frames, versus seeing the LCD display the symbol set "r17" is quite different. I'm sure that when I shoot I get a lot more than 16 frames, I'm talking about what the LCD displays for the "available buffer" indicator, i.e. the "r" and a number.

What I'm looking for is for someone to confirm whether r16 is the largest the LCD will ever display for 14bit NEF, or whether there is some combination where you can increase this value and perhaps optimize the buffer pipeline.

Thanks,

Roland.
