No, it also will affect your ability to edit the RAW images - in some
cases certain flaws or oversights in the DNG specification and/or bugs
in the RAW to DNG converter meant that you suffer a severe loss of
quality in the process going from native RAW to DNG.
DNG isn't much more than a stopgap measure for cameras for which there
isn't a proper native RAW developer anymore, it is not a proper
alternative for existing native RAW files if there is a way of
developing directly from them.

You can't. DNG has different behaviour from your native RAW format.
