I agree. I have drunk the RAW lemonade and shoot only RAW. For me it is because a RAW based workflow using Lightroom is more forgiving and generally easier than using JPG I am looking forward the manufacturers taking a much more integrated approach to image quality by recognizing that lens and sensor shortcomings can be mitigated in raw processing. In this way the low end can get cheaper and smaller with better quality and the high end will get higher. The M8 has moved a little way down that path, perhaps inadvertently, and Panasonic and Nikon have also taken timid steps in that direction. DxO has a very good raw converter - but its optimizations work only with a limited subset of lens/body combinations. Watching the before/after of a DxO conversion is eye-opening, to say the least. -- Clive http://clive.moss.net/blog On Thu, Mar 26, 2009 at 2:19 AM, Geoff Hopkinson <hopsternew at gmail.com> wrote: > ?The combination of a Raw converter and Photoshop (or specialised > plug-ins for PS) is much more powerful and flexible in every aspect than > anything the camera may achieve in firmware conversion to jpeg.
