Hi,

if you still refuse to believe that a raw image can be compressed without loss of data, try it yourself with WinZip or some other compression application.

I just compressed a random NEF file from my image folders and the resulting .zipx file was one third smaller.

In that particular image the compression ratio was exceptionally good but in general, unless the compression algorithm is written having additional information of the source files, results can be less optimal. The file can get even larger.
