Recently, Ken Rockwell stated on his site that many of the advanced in-camera processing functions of the D700 and other Generation 2 Nikons (D3, D300, D90) are not used if you shoot RAW. That in essence, you are shooting the equivalent of a Gen 1 D2x.

Is this true?

His words, "Gen 2 cameras are using the increased in-camera processing horsepower to do many tricks not available when shooting raw.

Most, if not all, raw software will throw you back into Gen 1 quality, even when shooting a Gen 2 camera. It's not 2006 anymore. Most raw software does not do any of the clever things, like ADR, expanded color controls or totally automatic lens corrections, that are done in-camera with Gen 2 cameras. Camera-brand software probably duplicates what's done in-camera, but use any other, and you're on your own."
