Description

An option to choose losslessly compressed raw (RAF) files.

Explanation

Lossless compression would help in saving storage space both on sd cards and long-term storage drives, at the same time leaving intact the RAW image quality and integrity. It could also speed-up the writing of images to the SD card, helping in clearing the buffer during bursts.
Computational power needed for compressions should be taken into consideration, probably suggesting a faster rather than more effective level of compression.
