As other have said you can't and it's absurd. Even worse is that it seems the A7riv is the same so you're stack to 61mpx if you want raw. For me it's a deal breaker.

I agree, not giving the high res model that level of flexibility seems like a cheap move... almost like something straight from the Canon playbook.

How can you have a raw file that is supposed to be the raw output of the sensor and then also have it downscaled to a lower resolution?

If you want lower resolution raw file, you can go into crop mode because its still raw output from just a subsection of the sensor.

If some brand of camera is giving you a full sensor raw file lower than its native resolution, then its not really raw anymore.

"Some brand"?  That brand is:  Nikon and Canon.  It's a very useful raw file, even if not really raw.  Especially for high volume photographers.  No need to treat your lovely full frame camera like an aps-c crop camera to get it.  Sony should offer this too!
