Thanks to all for the insight! And is there any benefit to printing a RAW image compared to the same image saved in JPEG? Say I do no post processing just have the identical pictures but save it as JPEG.

Actually you can't print a RAW (you can't even see a RAW file, since is a coded file). When you shoot in RAW and see the image on the camera display (the same with a PC), what you are seeing is an embedded JPG image, which is produced by the camera and stored together with the image code in the cr2 file.

You can process a RAW file and produce a JPG printable image.
