No camera has ever used 16 bits fully. The least significant bit or two is just noise.
+1 Yep hehe. That might change soon, though, with on-chip DACs and tech like exmor from Sony (well, from IBM I believe but yeah). Apparently the Leica M chip (new one) also uses digital CDS as well. Supposedly. It wouldn't take much more improvement over the D800 chip to make good use of 15 bits. 16-bits nah, but we'll get there at this rate I believe. At this point I think high ISO is so good, I want some deep deep full well capacity and base ISO 50 or so ;-0 More concerned with the Canon side of things. First they came out with 14-bit raw without restrictions on shooting speeds, etc, but then haven't really "grown" into it.
