I've been shooting raw (like that frizzy hair guy on YouTube) for a long time now. Nikon, Olympus, Sony, Panasonic, an older Fuji (X-Pro1 and X100S) and maybe another brand I forgot ;-)...but I've always been shooting raw since I discovered editing in Lightroom (version 1). I've always been more happy with raw since it was much easier to adjust white balance, push/pull shadows/highlights and various other reasons. Mostly for flexibility and highest image quality.
Well, after about a year and a half with the X-T1, I think I'm finally going to shoot JPG only (except for rare occasions). Why? I just can't replicate (in Lightroom) the great color and tones I get straight from the camera. I've tried for awhile now to tweak the Adobe provided camera profiles to my liking, but they always seem to have too much contrast and the color just isn't quite the same.
Adjusting white balance in Lightroom? The X-T1 has the most accurate auto white balance I've seen from a camera. I previously gave that nod to the Olympus E-M1. So, adjusting white balance for my Fuji files isn't as important anymore.
Recovering highlights or lifting shadows in Lightroom? That's not as important anymore either because I've editing the in-camera settings to my liking so that I don't have really harsh shadows or highlights. I can tweak a little here and there as I see fit for the JPG files in Lightroom.
I went outside around my yard and garden and snapped some examples over the last day or two. I'm very pleased with the images straight from the camera and with a few mild edits in Lightroom. These are all from the 56mm and 18-135mm. Some people badmouth the 18-135 being just an average lens at best, but I think it's excellent.
