Frankly, I would have to disagree. Most users use JPEG color .... Only a small proportion of users process RAW files in Lightroom

Holy cow! I was not aware that there were statistics on this.

Do you also have the data broken down by the percentage of enthusiasts that shoot and process RAW in LR / CS versus, say, the percentage of enthusiasts that let the camera do their job?

I would love to see the link where you got that info.

Thanks.

I was just about to post the same question. It seems to me that, as a generalization, the higher spec cameras tend to be purchased by those seeking optimal results. That desire would probably cause many (?) to use RAW for maximum capture and advanced processing to extract the best final result, at least for their more important photo captures.

Yes, what you write seems obvious to me ... or at least it did before reading all the Oly / JPEG posts on this forum ... now I am not so sure. Hence the interest in reading the studies from which such comments derive ...
