raw, mraw, sraw - comparisons

Hello all,

I recently got a 70d to upgrade from my 550d and now I have different raw options.

Test shots are showing that (for me) sRaw is showing finer detail than Raw at 100%.

I am using a 15-85 canon lens and shooting around f8 to f16 for landscapes.

I used Dxo8 for Raw comparison vs DPP and got similar quality output.

DXO doesnt like sRaw but DPP does and so does IrfanView (go figure as I havent updated it in 3 years). Both programs are showing finer detail and my blind eyes cannot tell the difference except for clarity.

Now I see a lot of people saying that Raw is better than sRaw and have even seen images from 5d mark III's where they got more detail, yet my camera doesnt.

Reading around some people are indicating bayer interpolation is used at higher resolutions and it may not be used at lower resolutions.

Any ideas and have people compared with similar results at 100%?
