When do you usually save you files in "Jpeg 2000" format rather than "Jpeg" format? Do you use Jpeg 2000 at all?

No one uses JPEG 2000.

I couldn't find any reason to use it, either.

I've never used Jpeg 2000.

From what I understand, the "main benefit" is that it offers "lossless compression". But to me the main problem is that it is not in common use and so support would presumably be an issue.

What I don't know is how far that extends -- for example, can Web hosts handle Jpeg2000 images? I dunno. Can print providers? I dunno.

To me it's pretty much a no starter for now, simply because I get good results for the Web and for printing using high Quality jpegs (one could also use tiffs). If in time, Jpeg 2000 is "universally accepted" well, then there is certainly grounds for another look...

That being said, I have a similar view toward DNG, but a lot of people make use of it. So maybe there are folks here who are getting a good use for Jpeg2K...?
