Same here. Also, it's often a question how the RAW converter can handle the files. I can imagine there are converters around which prefer uncompressed RAW or give better results - but since Fuji is recommending C1 and working together with Phase One (there are specail Fuji versions available) I have not the slightest doubt to get the results I want. The X-E2 files edited and exported out of C1 were better than the Silky Pix stuff.
Lossless compressed RAW files are better than uncompressed in almost all scenarios.
The primary advantage is obviously disk space.
A RAW converter won't give worse results with a compressed RAW vs an uncompressed one. It's either the converter is able to decompress the file or it's not. There is no in-between. If it supports the format, then the rendering will be identical to an uncompressed file.
