The image you see on your lcd is the same image you would get if you were shooting jpeg on your camera. It is a jpeg file and the histogram represents that jpeg file, not your raw file.

You're seeing an embedded .jpg which is contained within the raw file.
Hi guys, thanks for responses, but there is still a conflict in the answers. These are 2 different things: the embedded JPEG, or a JPEG version of the RAW.
For now, Jim G's answer make more sense, because when I view the RAW directly on my PC, that is indeed the "embedded JPG" within the RAW, which is smaller rez file than the RAW. This would explain the softness of images when I zoom in on the 40D's LCD. If I was viewing the full-sized JPEG version of a RAW, there shouldn't be such fuzziness.
Can anyone clarify?
