As you have found.

ETTR was a good Idea back in the early days of digital imaging.

I was there. It was a fair solution.

But that was then, this is now.

And imaging sensors and the accompanying Processing Engines are many, many times better. There has also been an equal improvement in noise reduction capability in our editing programs.

All that adds up to ETTR being a technique that has outlived its practical life.

You got a camera, now go out and get a life; or at least a picture of one!

The principle behind ETTR is just as valid now as it has always been. Yes, the camera JPEG engines have improved and now deliver much more consistent mediocrity. The very best is still exactly that: the best. This sounds like willingness to settles for good enough. Striving for excellence never gets outlived.
