100% agreement with Gary and Jon. I did not understand this when I got my D800, but I do now. The images from the D800 are stunning - simply incredible. I never know when something I may take as a "snapshot" given a little work in post, turns into one of those amazing image quality pictures. These surprises happen a lot. So, I want to capture and preserve as much sensor data as I can with every single image. RAW, 14 bit, lossless compressed is all I ever shoot.
