I always shoot RAW+. There are a lot of images I take and just want to share, they aren't going in a gallery or on my wall, that's when I use the jpeg.

I believe my Kr is set to Natural with a bump to contrast and sharpening.

I used jpeg only for the first year or so and have no complaints. Once you set it up how you like it, the camera pumps out good results.

Truthfully you are missing out not shooting RAW.

In camera processing has come a long way, but its far from perfect. You will spend more time re-adjusting settings in camera than you would just post processing it.

The vast majority of my shooting is outdoors, so I always shoot RAW+, with the JPG setting on Landscape. Memory cards are cheap and swapping them is quick & easy, so I don't understand why everyone, except maybe pros, don't shoot RAW+.

The only instance were I can see it useful to shoot RAW rather than RAW+ is for continuous shooting as the jpegs take up some additional buffer space causing the continuous shooting to slow down earlier.

+1 for RAW+. And on the flip side, in addition to @lister6520's comments, the only time I shoot strictly jpeg is when I am using the built-in HDR function ..... I don't think my K-r supported this, but the last time I did an HDR image with my K-30, I noticed for the first time a brief message offering to optionally save the 3 RAW files used to create the HDR image.
