Why not just shoot RAW only if you are using JPG for an in-camera preview only since RAW displays just fine?

The RAW embedded jpeg (you never see the RAW itself) is of lower resolution than the usual in-camera jpeg, so if checking for critical focus/shake/blur then it needs to be the jpeg at something like 10x or 14x. That 's worse than pixel peeping I know, but it delivers.
