I'm a little bit curious about the white balance improvements as I do shoot in SRAW-1 (5DII) and MRAW (7D).
Thanks for mentioning it, I never met anyone actually using these since 18/21mp file sizes arent like the Nikon d800 ... why do you do it, to save disk/card space (you could also just use dng lossy compression)?
Thanks for asking, Marsu42. Well, it's based on the experience that with the 10 megapixels of the 40D I previously owned, I never really ran out of resolution. I have prints on canvas at 80x120 cm from that camera that are fine and I won't print any larger than that.
Also, I rarely crop my photo's because they really have to be 'just right' out of camera so usually I have the full 10 megapixels to work with. Any cropping will be limited to the very edges if there's something really disturbing there, or I'll fix that in post. Only on occasion I do shoot in full RAW if I really want to maximize resolution or if I expect to be cropping heavily. This can be if I unexpectedly don't have enough reach for instance. And I've shot some amazing high-res panorama's.
DNG is not an option for me as I like to keep the files in native raw format, and I use DPP to process my Canon photo's. For the Sony NEX files I do use Lightroom.
Hence to save on card and drive space, I generally shoot in these smaller RAW formats that are approx 10 megapixels
