Medium RAW quality of D850

I am wondering what is lost if anything in the quality of the Medium RAW files of the D850 vs the full-sized files. Real-world experience please, not speculation. I just rented one, and the Medium files seem fine for editorial purposes, but I only shot the full-sized files for copying artwork that was going to be printed at 30x40 and larger. Are other pros shooting with the smaller RAW files as needed? I am interested in this camera, and so far the most compelling improvements over the D810 / D4 combo are the tilting display and slightly better tracking of action than the D4. Any insight would be appreciated before I plunk down the dollars.
