Learn how too interpretative the "things" you see in the E.V.F. use e.g the spot meting and see what is going one with the expose fluctuations etc.etc.VERY, VERY important!

The problem here is that optimizing exposure for jpeg output is fundamentally different from optimizing exposure for RAW output. More specifically how one sets up camera defaults and how one utilizes the EVF and histogram/blinkies display needs to be different for jpeg shooting and RAW shooting. One set of recommendations doesn't work for both modes of shooting if one is hoping to get the very best possible image quality. An image that is hopelessly overexposed in jpeg may, in fact, be perfectly exposed in RAW. It is important to bear this in mind when doing a jpeg vs. RAW comparison. If you're starting with the same JPEG+RAW capture, you're in all likelihood starting with one or the other files being relatively handicapped.

That is NOT my point!

Do NOT shoot hopelessly overexposed! Look in your E.V.F. and you see what is going on.Do NOT shoot blind!

If the E.V.F. picture is to your satisfaction take the shot.

Your above statement simply reveals that you don't understand RAW and how to expose for RAW processing. The scope of your experience and understanding is clearly limited to JPEG shooting only.
