Can I do better with Raw than with my best JPGs? No. 


I agree with almost all you've said here. I almost always agree with almost all you say, and the gracious and clear way you say it.

However, one exception to your statement above: FZ200 (and LX7, and ... ) images essentially always have some noise, even at lowest ISO. Noise reduction in-camera, however one may laboriously work out JPG settings, leaves some indigestible artifacts in the images, which cannot be removed by subsequent noise reduction processing. That issue is dispensed with by shooting raw.

I won't qualify this with YMMV or IMHO or any other weasel words. I'll stand by it. You can do better.
