Sony has announced the addition of uncompressed 14 bit RAW still image capture to its Alpha range of cameras. 

The feature will be user selectable and will be included in the new A7S II

There will also be a firmware update for additional cameras beginning with the A7R II enabling user selectable compressed or uncompressed 14 bit RAW still image capture. 

"The voice of our α 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."

This is great news as it will hopefully satisfy the more rabid pixel peepers who claim that Sony RAW files are unusable.

For the rest of us Sony users, I welcome the possibility of greater processing latitude and the opportunity to use the full RAW if I need it.
