I usually do a lot of postprocessing and also specifically expose for postprocessing, which usually results in RAW files that are flat and have low contrast

And how does one do that, hmmm?

....Am i the only one who thinks that maybe we are spending too much time worrying about perfect technical image quality and wasting time with hours of post processing instead of planning ahead, take good pictures that do not require a lot of postprocessing and spend time with our loved ones or other hobbies instead of sitting in front of Photoshop?

Totally agree. The more one tries to previsualize the final image at the time of shooting, then sets up the camera to produce that at the time of shooting, the more one has the opportunity to integrate the creative process instead of splitting it into pre-creation and post-creation, where the time gap between the two phases can damage the original idea (so many new ideas having occurred in the interim that it is not all remembered holistically).

As an aside, if the in-camera jpeg files are a bit crude, one can always shoot raw and process in the manufacturer's own raw processor e.g. Olympus Viewer, which can export tiff files with all the camera settings embedded just like in-camera jpegs.
