Sharpness

I would like to know what sharpness setting other k30 owners are using?My new k30 requires the sharpness be turned down 2 stops to get a photo that doesn't look severely over sharpened,so much so that it makes the fine sharpness useless since it can't be dialed down enough.

That doesn't seem right unless you've got the sharpest lens ever made. Are you sure it's not your viewing software? Some can look really crunchy with good images that are resized automatically to fit the screen. A better rescaling option may be buried in the menus.

You might want to change the Custom Image from Bright to Natural to see how it does first before doing change in Sharpness.

I've used the K20D and the K-5 and view using the same computer and software and i don't get the over sharp effect out of those camera's,i've also tried using different programs to view the photos with the same results.Every custom image setting requires the same -2 sharpness adjustment.I don't have another K30 to compare so that is why i'm asking,i thought it was odd that the default sharpness would be so far off?

I don't know but between my K-20D and K30, the K30 seems to be a little softer than the K-20D, which both using the same 100 f/2.8 Macro and on same computer and Lightroom.

The sharpness and saturation and picture profile doesn't affect the image when shooting RAW.
