When I first got the X-T2 I used Compressed raw. Then I saw the actual raw files, when imported in LR, were around 25MB, compared to the 33MB of the X-T1. How can that be? I then switched the X-T2 to uncompressed Raw which generates a 50MB raw files and I haven't looked back! On a 32G SD card I can get 497 uncompressed Raw + JPEG Fine.
It is very possible that compressed and uncompressed have the same quality, but I always wonder about that. On my D800e I shoot lossless compressed which brings the size from around 70MB to 50-55MB.
45mb read/write, 60mb read/write SD cards are cheap. Sandisk, Lexar, and other brands are always on sale somewhere. I have around 16 32G SD cards that I've accumulated whenever there is a sale on somewhere, so I'd rather shoot the uncompressed and not worry about it.
