Raw Files.. Compressed or Uncompressed?

I’m sure this has been discussed before, but the search did not return great results... so..

Do you shoot in Raw Compressed or Raw Uncompressed?

Obviously storage and speed will be an advantage of using compressed, especially when it comes to the new 61MP a7RIV, but the uncompressed files have 14-bit output as opposed to the 12-bit compressed. I assume that landscape photographers will choose uncompressed and sports shooters will use compressed.

Would love to hear what you prefer.
