You need to read up on what Camera RAW data is -- it isn't RGB data. The raw sensor data has to go through some pretty extensive processing to get RGB data - that processing is demosaicing. Also, Camera RAW data typically uses lossless JPEG compression.
I'm saying that LibTIFF shouldn't be decompressing and demosaicing the Camera RAW data - it's too complex (and not easy to do well).
Thanks for clearifying this Chris.
