    I've been told that there is some (limited) RAW support available for the 5N now via Capture One 6.3. I was curious if anyone has done side by side comparisons either between the 5N's jpeg and RAW output, or between the 5N's RAW and another camera's RAW.
    The initial results I'm seeing from the 5N are very impressive, but it also seems apparent to me that the jpegs have heavy in-camera processing. There is some artificial detail apparent, especially in the higher ISOs, so I'm wondering just how good the sensor itself really is. I always shoot in RAW format for my work, so it is very important to me.

    Perfect! Thank you, I hadn't realized that they'd put up the RAWs as well. Looking side by side, I have to say the 5N's output looks very comparable to the latest APS-C DSLRs!
