I do shoot in RAW+JPEG for years and with my camera, I can't see a difference in terms of resolution. Can you somehow show an example? It is easy to say something without proofing. Again, I think this was true in early days. You have your resources here in Dpreview. So show me what difference it makes in resolution / details with the use of RAW or JPEG.

I'll show you two examples, one with iso 100 and one with iso 3200. One is from raw developer with no processing, even a standard curve, noise reduction and sharpness is NOT applied. The other one is processed in camera. The shots are taken very carefully. These are 100% crops from my 24mp crop camera Sony Alpha 65 with Sony 50mm f/1.8 lens. You cannot see any difference in resolution. You don't need to take my word for it. Try it yourself.

Ouuhh ... sorry, but I can't somehow upload my images. I get error.
