Why you say, I love my JPEG’s straight out of my camera ?! Why not I say, generally speaking there’s no reason NOT to shot RAW, or at least RAW + JPG. The only valid reason not to shoot RAW that I can think of is if you need crazy high burst rates and shooting RAW doesn’t give you what you need.
Let me start with a list of non valid reasons not to shoot RAW.

I could do a long list of the reasons why you should shoot RAW but there are plenty of those around on the internet. I’ll try and be brief and get to the point straight away.
The main reason to shoot RAW is the time factor, the human factor. You change over time and even though you love your Fujifilm’s ‘Classic Chrome’ JPG’s today, you might hate them five years from now. If you do, you will find that you have pretty much painted yourself into a corner. Sure you can edit the JPG’s but not nearly as much as you can edit the RAW’s. It’s like night and day almost, the RAW files have so much more information and therefore much greater editing latitude.
So…do yourself a favour, shoot RAW, be ware of the time factor !
