Here are 2 pics, the 1st is sooc and the 2nd is the RAW conversion using LightRoom with only a few seconds work, definitely not minutes

....comparing sooc with raw conversions. What's the point of such a comparison? It's an intentionally biased result.

There are dozens of adjustments you can make to JPEGs to improve image quality over the sooc shot and that would then be a fair comparison. If the emphasis is on image quality, it's only reasonable to assume that an image editor would be used to fine-tune a JPEG -- just like a raw image. That's the only comparison that means anything.
