X-T1 RAW v.s. JPEG?

Which do you prefer, my RAW interpretation in Lightroom 5.4 or the camera JPEG:

Camera JPEG

I need my thinking cap on for this one.

It seems to my eyes they both look equally as good as one another.

Re: X-T1 RAW v.s. JPEG?

Difficult to decide but I think, on balance, I prefer the first one, the camera jpg. The processed RAW seems to be slightly over-sharpened and ever so slightly 'harder' on the eyes.

I suspect the second one would produce a better, more defined and clearer and print though.

A tough one, Ian. I suspect that a print comparison would need sizeable prints and some study. I also think that teaking either could make them even closer.
