99% I use JPG. Most of my friends use RAW and always are trying to
convince me. But I think it's too troublesome and you don't really
notice differences (except when the photo is bad: in RAW you are
able to recover a bad shot but not in JPG)

And RAW is not a universal format... you can realise in a few years
your images are not legible. I prefer standar and safe JPG


When you run Canon's RAW conversion software on a PC in batch mode, does it give you a JPG that it the same as what the camera would produce. If so, it seems like you could also run a batch file to covert all your RAW files into JPG after the fact and save both the JPG's and RAW files for posterity. Then you have best of both worlds.

About RAW not being universal, Adobe has a free convertor to convert RAW files from most currrent DSLR's into DGN format (though I don't know if the supports the 5D yet). DGN might not be truly universal either but it seems like its picking up traction.
