I get the technical descriptions of this issue, but I operate in a world where I take photos, and look at them with the naked eye.

Sample comparisons would be very helpful. A7r vs D800e comparison of RAW images of different subjects.

Can anyone do this? (I can't).

I am pretty sure this won't be an issue for me in normal shots. I am not sure when it will be an issue for me. That's not the point. The point is Sony says 14-bit raw recording in their A7 and A7R specifications. They then deliver 11-bit raw data. That's false advertising, plain and simple.

If they told me it's a 32 megapixel camera and delivered 6000 x 4000 images, I'd be no-less irritated. If they publish a spec, they should deliver it.
