wombat2go - for me it makes no sense to generate tiffs in camera.
I am not, the 6x7 images are on Ektar and scanned. The output from the scanner is .tiff.
Yes, the files are too big. I think the option of down-sampling by an even number so that the pixels are about the same as the monitor HxW is a good option.

DNG is the format the camera shoots, TIF is the output format I export from Lightroom, so both have their place. I usually output 16-bit tiffs if I need to do further processing in Photoshop, and sample the final edit to 8-bits.

For a camera of this level, I do not see why I would use jpegs at any part of the process, except for posting images online.

Exactly so. Be gone damned JPG's!
