100% agree. The point I was trying to make, but possibly not very clearly, is that if the JPG meets our needs then we can accept that and the job is done in the camera. As an artistic person I love photo editing and I had years of experience developing my images and images for other people in the darkroom and photolabs. Now with digital I do it on a computer.
I go travelling and shoot in jpg and raw. I come home and spend hours developing the raw and I really enjoy the process. I then export the edited images as tiff files and delete all the out of camera jpgs. However, there are rare occasions that I can not beat the JPG. This is very rare, but it can happen. Then I keep that JPG.
Also when I do a commercial shoot I use Raw + JPG. I want the JPG to work in the camera, but if I must do further editing I want the RAW file. This is also the case with wedding photography.
