Anyone finding the huge raw files a pain on the 800?

If you're doing a proper retouch in Photoshop you're looking at 20-30 layers without even batting an eye.

The resulting file size and strain on the PC memory is quite massive so I can certainly understand the complaint about D800 file size. I've had D700 files grow to 2-4GB in size once you start compositing things on top of the retouch.

Do you know the size of the scan of 8x10" @300 dpi in CMYK? It is 28MB. I wonder how we managed making posters 20 years ago
