I am with tomshen on this issue. I am not a pro, so I can't get my exposures/wb correct everytime. Shooting RAW gives me the ability to adjust exposure, white balance, etc far better than what I can do with curves/manual white balance tweaking in JPEG. As for speed of workflow, yes, RAW is slower and more clunky to use, but with a good workflow (especially when using C1), it only takes me between 10-30s each to human-process each photo (waiting in the developing queue and developing times not included), so I don't see it as a problem.

I do shoot JPG from time to time, when covering sports events and I need the faster buffer-flush rate (which RAW will choke on). The results are acceptable for newspaper/online publications where image quality/white-balance issues are not so much of a criteria. But when you want to do big prints and fine art photography, 8 bits compressed JPEG will not be sufficient. It all depends what you shoot.

Best regards,
Wenyao
