No, not really. 8bit Tiff with a gamma of 2.2 does not contain measurably more tonal or color information than a high-quality Jpeg. 16bit tiff with gamma 1.0 will be a significant improvement in terms of shadow detail... but it's about 96MB uncompressed.

There are two potential solutions. 1. Write 12-bit TIFFs, but that might run the risk of other software not knowing what to do with them; 2. Allow in-camera conversion to TIFF in review mode, not when shooting.

How do Nikon achieve it? My D3s bodies write TIFFs pretty fast even at the highest bit setting.
