You mean 25% of the pixels but the same file size?

D4s manual:
- 14 bit uncompressed raw: 4928 × 3280 -> 33.6 MB
- 12 bit lossless compressed raw: 4928 × 3280 -> 15.4 MB
- 12 bit compressed raw: 4928 × 3280 -> 14.1 MB
- 12 bit small uncompressed raw: 2464×1640 -> 13.1 MB

Reducing the resolution by a factor of four and only saving 7% in file size in the process doesn't sound like a very appealing idea. Except to those having a fear of large numbers. But apparently just because something is physically or mathematically impossible doesn't stop some people for criticising the designers and developers for not doing the physically impossible.
