I am definitely the odd man out, as I only shoot jpeg for portraits, sports, family shoots. (and I would never, ever attempt a wedding, as I don't like stress...)

What I would state is that if you shoot jpeg, you do not have to use Large/Fine, but can use any other combo of size and jpeg quality. I usually shoot medium fine, or large fine if I need superior detail. What I like most about shooting at 35MP is the ability to crop like crazy. Of course, if I composed every shot correctly, I would never have to crop, would I? What can I say...

Here's what I can show you about cropping. Here's the uncropped shot, and below is a tightly cropped version:

That's all I can say about that...


Nice image, but the crop looks soft.
