Should I go RAW only?

Exposure is often different, so yes

I routinely apply negative EC in the Raw converter to my photos before sending them to Photoshop for further work.  By taking advantage of the extra headroom in the Raw files I get more DR and a bit less noise; when shooting JPEG you have to sacrifice the headroom or the photo ends up being too bright because exposure and every other camera setting is baked into the JPEG file.  Consequently, I never shoot Raw+JPEG because the JPEG files are of no use to me.
