Would it be better, from the noise performance, to shoot in MRAW (28MP). Or shoot the full 50MP and then downsize to roughly 28MP in post.

Talking live music gigs where 28MP is enough for my application. Would rather ingest the smaller RAW files on the MAC, but noise performance is paramount.

Apologies if already discussed elsewhere.

glad you asked about RAW file here! i use my 5DsR camera to generate full RAW files--true it is 50+MB files but then when you try to make it usable for print, post on the net, etc, etc....you have to convert it to jpeg, which will give you 24-28MB. although still a large file, but not the same resolution as the RAW and you can see that the detail is not the same between RAW and jepg, as expected.

so, the useless RAW files are only good for viewing and conversion to jpeg, and you have to have huge amount of HHD storage to store those huge RAW files
