I will shoot NEF+JPEG when I am doing an event with lots of images that I will need to produce quickly. I find that for such shots JPEG will suffice for 99% of the time and having NEF's for the rare occasion when extensive PP is needed.

I at times shoot only NEF when I will only have a few images that I would prefer to PP myself later. While the camera picture controls are good (especially for snapshots), I find that I generally can produce superior results in Lightroom or Photoshop (or a combination of both).

When using Nikon software to render NEF's, all in camera settings will be applied. So there should be visually no difference between an in-camera JPEG and a View/Capture NX2 NEF conversion.

Hope this helps!
