Re: Why not just shoot Large Super Fine JPEGs? You can

There are obvious benefits to shooting RAW. As good as Olympus JPEG engine is, Auto WB will always make mistakes and then it becomes difficult to fix them in JPEG. Some under exposure/over exposure headroom is also useful. I also prefer Lightroom's Noise Reduction algorithms as it tends to keep more detail, makes an image look sharper.

One is not always in a situation to be able to set AWB and exposure perfectly in JPEG (though blue/red live exposure warning indicators should minimize wrong exposure).

For now, I guess I will shoot RAW + JPEG to make the best of it.

Thanks
