Re: So what is the deal with a descent RAW processing SW?

I have been using the JPGs with great success. With all the fine adjustments one can make in Photoshop and other photo editors these days, I start to wonder about the necessity in real-world applications.

I have also been a RAW user in the past, exclusively in many cases, but have done product shoots lately where I find the JPGs more than satisfying and very easy to finess in Photoshop. Zooming in shows the images to be tack-sharp with loads of detail. I'm constantly blown away by the image quality, but have yet to get Lightroom / RPP, which seems to be the best option at this point. Finding it hard to justify when JPGs are so good and easily tweaked.
