When converting a 12 bit RAW compared to a 14 bit RAW photo to JPEG; more than likely the output will look the same unless … you use a color managed system with a high-end monitor. Then you may see subtle differences.

However shooting in either 12 or 14 bit RAW and outputting to sRGB (8 bit) there are benefits as pointed out by many post before this one.

The one major benefit of shooting in 14 bit RAW vs 12 bit RAW - future image editing and viewing possibilities may make very good use of the extra recorded color gamut.
