I posted this at "that other" place but figured I'd maybe get a more coherent response here
Why would anyone shoot jpg with an A7(r)? There is so much discussion about quality of the engine, etc, but I'm at a loss for why there is *any* talk about it. If you're going to spend the money to buy a FF camera and invest in the system, why would you then shoot jpg and lose much of what you bought the camera for?
Maybe there are good reasons for it or workflows that I don't use or understand. But given the seamless nature of "raw processing" in LR/Aperture/C1 these days along with cheap storage space, I'm not seeing the argument. But maybe I'm missing something.
I admit that I shot a fair amount of jpg with my u43 cameras, but frankly one reason I had the 6D and now moved to the A7r/RX1r is to get all that DR to use/abuse in order to get images under bad conditions.
So am I missing something? Wouldn't be the first time
