14-bit uncompressed RAW vs 8-bit compressed DNG

 
8bit compressed DNG
14bit uncompressed RAW
8bit JPG
++ smaller file size
+ shorter write time
+ lens correction
+ full sensor information
+ better dark levels
+ better Hi-ISO
+ larger image size
+ true 3:2 ratio
+ real RAW image
+ smooth histograms
+ even smaller file size
-- information loss
- black box corrections
- suboptimal Hi-ISO
- simple compression
- larger files
- longer write (JPG...)
- service mode non persistent
- severe information loss
- reduced dynamic range
- reduced post processing possibilities
- long write times
