I agree, maybe 8 bit TIFF is really an uncompressed jpeg, with not that much data left.

Can't agree with that.

Would say that 8-bit TIFF is OK if the output file after processing is a webshot for posting, etc.

16-bit TIFF for considerable post-processing followed by a largish print.

For a late model Sigma not much choice other than SPP for conversion to either 8 or 16-bit TIFF and then off to your favorite Editor . . .
