Closeup shots of a flower

This is some tropical flower Connie has out near the buildings. I used the 60mm closeup lens on the Nikon D850, and then cropped the image to 1:1 to show the detail zoomed WAY in.

This was taken from a native JPG file from the camera. I have dual memory cards in the camera, and have it set to capture the image in RAW (NEF) format to one card, and JPG to the other. The photo program I use doesn't recognize the RAW file format, and honestly I only purchased Adobe Lightroom very recently and am still very wet behind the ears using that program. But I think there is a whole lot more detail to be squeezed out of those RAW files.

The camera also can save images in TIF format, which produces very large files but I think the detail would be better there too without that JPG compression that takes place.

But push come to shove, for posting stuff on the internet, or unless I would expect to be cropping way in to an image for some reason, I suppose JPGs will do just fine. I guess it is like getting a new gun and trying to see if you can hit the eye of a squirrel at 100 yards with it. It would be great if it could do that, but in 99 percent of cases, a body shot anywhere will do the job.
