I used to be a Raw evangelist myself. I haven't lost my faith entirely—I still shoot Raw most of the time, especially when I'm working. But in the article I just linked to, I argue that there are many rather solid reasons why many people still prefer to let their camera do the raw-to-JPEG conversion for them.

The only reason to favor jpg against raw is laziness. I never shoot jpg.
