For General photography
Is it better to process using RAW in Viewer 2 or just shoot and process JPG's.

If you take the time to get everything right in-camera, from white balance to sharpening to exposure, the JPEG's can look very good, but there are things you can do in Viewer 2 that you can't do in-camera. There's a sharpening compensation you can use to incrementally increase or decrease any setting that's not available in-camera and, of course, Viewer lets you change any in-camera setting to maximize the file quality after you take the picture.

Guess it just comes down to how important the images are you are shooting, how confident you are in getting everything right as you shoot, and/or whether or not you want to do post-processing.
