I never shoot JPG except with cheap P&Ss. I always need and use the latitude of RAW.

No argument Andrew,

This is a valid user's choice.  But the way the words were being thrown about I think some new and potentially new users of the GR were getting the impression that the Ricoh jpg files captured were useless.  They are not, they are as good as any other jpg files in my opinion.

Because some choose to only use RAW files because of the extra latitude allowed is no problem, but implying that all users must use RAW (or presumably risk disaster) is not necessary.
