Now if you think about that, and the fact that the Monochrom should yield the best JPEGs in the business, why would I want to spend valuable time doing lab work? I'm not Ansel Adams, but I intend to have a few memorable images as time goes on. And I don't keep the bad ones - I toss 'em.

I know you probably dont want another post about using RAW but having read so many reviews of the MM and the files it produces and having looked at a lot of pictures posted here and elsewhere I really think that this is the one camera where the JPG will never do it justice. It doesn't take long to tweak a RAW and I truly believe you will be blown away by how much improvement there can be.

Just take one RAW photo and try it, what do you have to lose?

Oh and btw ignore the negative posters above, they are probably just envious that you have such a great camera.

Thanks!! - I think that's actually good advice, and I'm going to at least make the attempt soon. I've been mistrustful of Adobe for years, and the recent decision re: Photoshop even exceeded my fears. So maybe that other free software will do the trick by itself?
