In that universe that you don't adjust the results in such a way to justify your preference.
True enough - in reality the supposed "pliability" of recent Nikon cameras' files only has value as an excuse to shoot badly and fix everything in post.
True. But it is an important feature when you like to spend your time reading specs, not developing in-camera capture skills, and then doing a lot of PP to get what you want.
I think photoshop is neat and I like some of the capabilties, but I don't like spending more time working on my photos than I do taking them. If you take the time to get properly exposed pictures in the camera, the need for PP is much less and the differences in theoretical performances of RAW files becomes much less important.
Not everyone feels this way, but I do.
