John, to me, that's not an apt comparison.
I've been surprised at how good the JPG quality out of almost any new DSLR today. Unless you're going to print at super high resolution and size, or shooting at extreme light conditions, there is no need to use RAW.
In other words, I submit that for 90% of all purposes, today, the JPG from high-end cameras can be considered as the equivalent of the negative in film world.
