Re: Excellent example, stevo23. For years I stuck to...

Have to disagree, Claudio... (I, too, have tried editing the jpg, can improve it, but simply cannot reach the caliber of the image processed from RAW). While your tweak dramatically (over) sharpened it, it also amplified tons of chroma noise...

Regardless, even if one COULD bring the in-cam JPG to the same level with additional processing, that defeats the purpose and argument of shooting JPG in the first place -- if you have to PP the OOC jpg to get similar quality, it's a no-brainer that you will be better off with all the information of the RAW file rather than crippling your PP efforts by starting with a compressed image.
