There are only two downsides that I can think of when using highest quality settings, both of which have to do with file size. If you have only one small memory card, you may find yourself limited to the number of pix when the shot of shots presents itself just after you've filled up your memory card.

Also, if, like me, you do a lot of continuous shooting, your buffer memory will fill up sooner and then you have to wait for the buffer to clear out (which will take longer because it has more to write) before you can continue firing 4 frames per second (or whatever the rate of continuous fire is for your camera).

If I found myself with this problem, I'd get a bigger, faster memory card (or two or three) rather than reduce the picture quality.
