it's like Ken said: discarding RAW is throwing away half the
potential of your expensive equipment.

Ken is flat out wrong on that by a bunch of orders of magnitude. Assuming you shoot with the appropriate settings for that shot at best occasionally RAW shooters might be able to claim 0.01% or less, not 50%. For all the extra time it takes to individually process each shot. If you process your RAWs with a batch process on the same setting for all, it's probably negative on the average improvement.

Especially as RAW shooters tend to learn more and more bad shooting habits the longer they shoot RAW. Because "I can fix it in RAW"
