I'm happy with them when they only need a little PP. I shot slide film for 40 years so I'm used to getting it right in camera. Generally all they need is a little tweaking.

Quite right.  A little tweaking means a small bit of cropping, straightening, lightening, upping contrast and perhaps a touch more sharpening.  In other words ALL jpg and raw images require some minor improvement.  Image manipulation isn't a sin.  Digital allows for post editing which is nothing but good.  In the old 'transparency' film days you HAD to do it right the first time.  No more.
