In JPEG mode the 22-bit data path doesn’t give much advantage, but in RAW mode it provides greater colour depth and more exposure latitude.
I just had to get a photo of my new car in there somehow, didn’t I? Here it is ably demonstrating the excellent dynamic range available from the RAW mode. The exposure was adjusted in Adobe Camera RAW to bring up a lot of highlight and shadow detail that was simply not visible in JPEG mode.
