Any JPEG only shooters here?

im enjoying playing with the creative filters on my pen-f, and I like the quality of the JPEGs it produces. I will still tweak in LR, so I’m wondering what I’d lose by dropping from RAW+JPEG to just JPEG?


- file size saving on the memory card

- faster to transfer, might make iPad import workflow practical

- if I shoot creative filters then I need to treat the raws and JPEGs as separate in LR. That gets messy fast with lots of duplicates. Shooting JPEGs only would avoid that


- some loss of leeway in recovering a photo. How much of a difference is there?

- if inshoot eg mono, I don’t have the option of a colour version. Can probably mitigate this with bracketing art styles if needed

any thoughts - have any of you moved to JPEGs only (or have always been)?
