ZS40 RAW vs JPEG comparison

Bought a ZS40 yesterday and have started wringing it out while I can still return it. One of the first things I did was to compare what I could get with RAW versus a camera JPEG and found the extra effort required to process the RAW is worth the bother.

Camera JPEG (100% view crop showing severely blown highlights)

Photoshop/ACR conversion (the latest ACR Release Candidate version opens ZS40 RAW)

EXIF: 1s f/5.6 at 4.3mm iso1600
