Re: +1, Photos are RAW.

If you are saying that RAW is a good as jpg, there are several things to consider:

1) You don't understand that particular photo as well as the camera.

2) Every reviewer and serious photographers shoots RAW, and IQ is measurably higher--i.e., when dpreview says measures the RAW IQ as much higher than JPG, you're disagreeing.

3) Sony's JPG engine isn't even that good on the a77. If you like the Sony's JPG, try shooting FUJI. It's been noted all over the place.

4) Your forgoing all sorts of malleability on the files, and the more options the more potential.

If you shoot JPG and you're happy that's good and you should continue to do so.  But if you want to extract every bit of IQ from that sensor, learn to process raw photos and you'll probably have a hard time shooting JPG.  I only shoot raw now, but sometimes I wish I could JPG, but I can't take the hit in IQ.
