I shoot RAW then convert to JPEG using LR but after seeing the RAW vs JPEG score on this review, aside from the DR score, should I be shooting in JPEG using this camera?

I am confused now especially with the RAW vs JPEG score

RAW jpg
Resolutie / Resolution --------------7.1 9.9
Dyn. Bereik / Dynamic Range ------6.6 5.9
Ruis / Noise------------------------- 8 8.4
Witbalans / Whitebalance------- 6.8 6.7
Kleur / Colour---------------------- 9.2 9.3

"The sharpness of jpg files is even higher than of the Canon 5D MK2, a camera with a full-frame sensor."

I have a feeling that they used the supplied converter, which other than WB corrections and highlight recovery, indeed doesn't add much and fails when it comes to proper sharpening (giant radius does not equal fine detail).

If however you use a good converter (ACR/Lightroom, DXOlabs etc.)....
