RAW (for me) with no discussions. There are some arguments if you use focus bracketing (speed) but even this is no argument for me.

RAW offers you so much possibilities to increase the imge quality. Especially if the photo is under or over exposed. You can compensate up to +-2 steps without a visible lost of quality.

Nice thread even though this is a classic debate easily answered.
It depends on what you want to do.
If you are on the creative side RAW is the best choice in terms of dynamic range headroom and information captured, being necessary for creative P.P.

Jpeg is the choice to shoot point and shoot still for every day, and data size economy.

Personally I only shoot raw with my cameras.
