To me, it would all depend on what I'm trying to achieve (what my goals are for these photos), and then what my preferences are for the processing outcome.
But, that's presuming that you want to really do the digital darkroom "work" to optimize your shooting. There are people here who just shoot jpegs because they like the results and can quickly deliver pics to clients or editors without messing around with the Raw processing.
I have a 5D3, and I shoot RAW to the CF card and jpeg to the sd card. I have had my studio 2 months now, and I was playing around with some of the 'in camera' B&W, and I like the results. The client also liked the results. Now, I load my RAWs into lightroom, and now, I have to work on 'recreating' those same in-camera results. It has gotten me to start thinking, that since having my studio, lighting is so awesome, I dont really have a problem with exposure, nor white balance. I might be okay with shooting jpegs.
Right now, I am becoming more of a production line, rather than a hobbyist. I want to get speed up my work flow, and to be able to deliver to clients faster. I normally do heavy LR work, however, I am getting backlogged on my shoots. I need to speed up, and this 'recreation' of my B&W is going to slow me down, when I already liked what I got out the camera.
I know of one pro photographer who shoots jpeg in his studio. It just got me thinking that if everything is already good in camera, there really is not a lot of adjustments that I need.
