I certainly wouldn´t mind more pixels. So far, everything has gotten better with smaller pixels.

I have been a RAW only shooter for years, since I want the best possible output, but with the D800 I have lately come to have new thoughts on in-camera JPG:s.

For smaller publications, web and social media use the in-camera medium or small JPG:s make a lot of sense; they´re actually quite good (compared to what I was used to with lesser (MP) cameras).
These files are small enough to send via WiFi or mail.

My guess is, that for ordinary newpaper use there is little use for 36 or more MP RAW files and that the smaller JPG:s are good enough.

You're still better off shooting raw and then processing jpegs in camera as needed.

Maybe you misunderstood me: I´m not talking about skipping RAW, just to shoot RAW+med/smallJPG as opposed to shooting RAW only (which is what I´ve been doing for a looong time).
