    I never bothered shooting raw until I recently got the R7. I shot a bunch of pictures in raw plus jpeg, and found that the raw files were so much clearer even before processing. The jpegs just seemed out of focus. I was shooting birds at pretty long distances. Is this normal?

    welcome to the forum dpmonk. a raw file contains all the information contained within the image where as a JPEG is a cut down version for use in printing, digital programs that are use for viewing the image, there for some of the information on say sharpness is not in the JPEG file, The JPEG file is smaller which can be usefull for internet transmission etc. The RAW file is a large file and unsuited for this task.
