Im not sure to be exact but it has been said on this forum that when
you shoot raw and jpg it uses the lowest quality jpg. So if that is
the case I would say there would be a big difference in the picture
quality you have showed us. I have not took the time to see this for
myself. But it does stand to reason.

Jeff.. enjoying my a700

Fine is like a lot of other systems best JPG I think the 40D Fine JPG is about 5MB same for Fine Xfine is probably like an uncompressed file and if I were shooting something with such subtle details I need Xfine.. just shoot RAW.

Not Shooting RAW+JPG because you can't get Xfine is odd because you are tossing out so much image info by no shooting RAW.
