I am wondering about the file size in lossless 16 bit raw files from the 850 compared to the 500. I have to get a new computer and I'm still thinking about a D850. I have replaced my D500 and am trying to get an idea of the extra storage required.


File options for raw are 12 bit and 14 bit.

Looking at a directory of processed recent 14 bit lossless compressed D850 raw files made in lightly overcast daylight of various subjects they seem to all be in the 52 mb to 62 mb range.

Subject, lighting, noise, other factors can change file sizes considerably. My high detail images such as foliage tend toward the high range. My night images have a higher percentage of the larger file sizes, I assume due partially to high ISO noise.
