1) You'll never in a million years see the difference between 14 and 12 bit raw. Purists will argue there's a difference, I never could see it.

It's actually pretty easy to see (once pointed out) in images/scenes were it makes a noticeable difference. Lots of examples out there. But it's rare to shoot/process a scene were there is an actual benefit to shooting 14 vs 12. Where it matters...the folks doing it know what they are doing and doing it to good effect. That is not the norm though. But when it is done well....a pleasure to see and learn from

I probably don’t have the viewing devices to take advantage anyway. My processing machine is a fairly ageing iMac, without Retina display, so I suspect I’m unlikely to see any benefit, or be able to edit to optimum.

I’ll certainly test both settings and see for myself though.
