I must say that the quality is much, much better than the original silent pic. Before, the difference in actual resolved detail between video (at Q-16) and the raw silent pic was virtually nonexistent. Sure there was a quality difference with the absence of H.264 compression artifacts, but it didn't really increase resolution by much. The raw DNG definitely captures more detail. I can read smaller text that's very blurry in video more clearly. For kicks, I compared it to a "reference" full resolution 21MP still image downscaled to 1920x1080 and although it obviously can't compare (still has aliasing issues among other artifacts), it's still pretty darn good and has similar resolution qualities.
The only problem atm is that there's no way to properly apply a picture style to the raw DNG. Video and the old silent pic basically had the picture styles "baked in," but that's not the case for raw DNGs now. So although I can still get a rough idea on the resolution improvement, the colors are way off and won't be easy to adjust.
It makes me wonder what else utterly destroys the video quality when it goes from the raw data to the final output. As I've mentioned before, the old silent pic didn't look much different from normal video, save for the lack of compression artifacts. Being 4:2:2 and uncomrpessed didn't make as a huge perceptual difference as the raw DNG does now.
