Nicely summed up Chris. It never ceases to amaze me the controversy that the JPEG v RAW discussions always seem to generate, plus of course, the lengthy threads it produces. The long and the short of it is that all camera sensors capture RAW data even when the camera is set to JPEG mode. In the event of the latter, the camera software processes this RAW data and produces the final JPEG image. In the case of setting the camera to RAW it is left to the user to do this processing. Whether the end result is better/quicker or not is immaterial and to a greater degree is very much dependent upon the skill of the user and in his/her choice of software.
As already said, two different tools in the bag, either to be used as and when circumstances dictate or deemed to be more appropriate. Neither is right or wrong - just different. 'You pays your money and takes your choice' I believe is a frequently used English expression?
