Question: For low light which would be better: RAW and Lightroom to rescue exposure issues or jpeg and rely on the camera's wizardy to nail the exposure and compensate for the low light?

thanks!

You are really asking if you should use RAW or JPEG. The exposure is fixed regardless of RAW or JPEG. If you want good image quality, shoot both. RAW will definitely give you more details but your software needs to know how to do lens compensation.

It is unfortunate that the NEX menu system does not allow me to choose RAW + STD JPEG. As I prefer smaller JPG files for storage.
