In reply to both you and Brue the shots you both posted are bin material, I have to say if I continually produced images like those, I would probably be a raw fan too, or at least would be looking for a new camera. To be fair you were trying to demonstrate the advantage of raw, sadly it confirmed my opinion that it is more a pixel peepers gimmick than a useful tool.

This was a grab out the window taken specifically to see if there was much highlight recovery possible in my LX7's RAW files. (There was almost two f-stops.) It's a test shot, not a photograph. To call it "bin material" is like calling the studio shots dpreview takes "bin material." I thought I'd made the purpose of that shot clear, but perhaps you are so fixed in your belief that RAW is not worth it that you missed the point.

Have fun with your JPEGs.
