JPEG vs TIFF. Explore option use more color information


#1

JPEG with 8bit and 16 million tones vs DNG(TIFF) with 16bit and 286 trillions possible tones!!

Thats alot of lost data if not used. Also requires and mtf hunk of a computer to process.
But is there any chance to extract and use all this info from colors?
E.g in those areas with close or hard to get good definition/separation like grass and snow
