Something I've overlooked for a long time is the (in)ability of the D200 to use 14-bit mode for RAW format. I don't know that you can to to that as my images are all 12 bit. I can't find in the Shooting Menu where you can change that. No doubt this has been brought up before but I had no luck finding it. Is 14-bit possible in the D200? I don't know if I could see the difference at any rate and it could slow down processing the image in camera.
