K-r setting

Greetings to my fellow Pentaxians ...

Just got my very first dSLR, the K-r this past weekend. Love it, especially when it is coupled with the DA21. I upgraded the firmware to 1.11 and am just getting familiar with the camera, learning all functions & features.
I'm curious to see what fellow K-r shooters set the various settings as their camera, or do most of you shoot the default settings out of the box. What settings you set for contrast, sharpness, colour ... etc
For now, I will be shooting only JPEG, and I would love to hear some suggestions.

Thanks all !

I asked this question when I first got my K-r and everybody told me to figure it out myself!

I would suggest:

Saturation +1 or +2
Contrast +2
Sharpness +1 or +2

Play around with that and see if you like the results
