I used to shoot JPEG only but will switch to RAW for best results.

Hmmm... I used to shoot RAW but, since buying the E-M5, now generally shoot JPEG for best results (smile).  It takes me too long to get my RAWs to look as good as the OOC Oly JPEGs...

I have Lightroom for PP.

I find LR will dig out detail from almost any shadows in my JPEGs.  It'll also take most of the edge off blown highlights (but large areas will posterize).

The PL 25/1.4 on the E-M5 is amazing, available light shots in restaurants at ISO 1600 are atmospheric and expressive.  Though I've set my auto ISO limit to 3200, I'm quite happy with ISO 6400 if needed.

Full disclosure: I don't often print, most of my shots are landscape/macro or friends/family for screen and Web.
