Sony Electronics, a worldwide leader in digital imaging and the world’s largest image sensor manufacturer, has today announced user-selectable Compressed and Uncompressed 14-Bit RAW image capture will be featured in the new a7SII once it arrives in stores this October.
Additionally, they have announced plans to add user-selectable compressed or uncompressed 14-Bit RAW still image capture via firmware update to additional cameras beginning with the recently introduced a7RII full-frame mirrorless model.
“The voice of our Alpha community remains the most important guiding force of our product development plans,” said Neal Manowitz, Deputy Vice President for Digital Imaging at Sony Electronics. “The addition of Uncompressed 14-Bit RAW processing is a direct result of customer feedback. Widely requested by photo and video enthusiasts, we believe the choice of RAW processing types will further elevate the performance of these extraordinary cameras.”
The a7SII and a7RII are compatible with Sony’s growing lineup of Î± -mount lenses, which now totals 63 different models including 12 native “˜FE’ full frame lenses. By early 2016, Sony will add an additional 8 new lenses to its FE full frame lineup, bringing the FE total to 20 lenses and the overall Sony Alpha lens line-up to over 70 different models.

Hope they will work it down to the earlier A7x models. Would love to see a good 24-105mm f/4 OSS and a 16-18 range UWA.
Not sure if they made a hardware change with a7RII to enable the update.
The announcement on alphauniverse.com has been taken off. I hope that this doesn’t mean they’ve made a mistake. Would you be able to confirm that the news is true?
No. It probably meant they were editing the release an don’t understand that removing a page while they edit can cause rampant speculation.
I hope we will also get 14Bit uncompressed and no chroma noise in bulb mode (long exposure)! This is preventing me from switching my A7R to A7RII !
