I leave mine at a neutral setting. Shoot RAW and adjust in your favorite photo editing software. If you shoot JPEG, maybe turn the sharpness up one notch in the menu.

I use my K10D in JPEG mode most of the time. I only use Raw or RAW + if I know there will be mixed light sources or other color temperature problems beyond what the Auto setting can handle.
I keep my Image Tone set on bright, and the Saturation, Sharpness, and Contrast all set on +1. I'm happy with the results I get.

Yes! I too use all the neutral settings and shoot RAW (DNG) + JPEG and post 99.9% of everything I have on the internet using the Jpeg. If I plan to print the image, I will work the Raw file for this purpose.

I have found Auto White Balance will work 100% of the time outdoors and may work indoors if there is enough natural light filtering into the area. Otherwise, best to use Tungsten Light White Balance and if this still does not get you good results, working the Raw file usually does. When shooting with ISO's 100 - 400, I will underexpose the image (-1/3), this saves most of the highlights. When shooting from ISO 400 and above, I will try to overexpose (+1/3), this for me, reduces noise etc. I've shot as high as ISO 1250 with good results...

Great camera and sensor, images properly exposed and shot at ISO 100 are pristine... have a good time!
