Best K-X settings?

Hey guys, I'd like to know what are the best settings for sharpness and color with the kit lens, or just in general? It seems like colors are kind of bland and blacks/shadows are kind of fuzzy. Any help would be great, thanks in advance!

The best are the ones that give the results *you* like for a given image. If there were a clear "best" for all situations, those would be the defaults, with no way to change them. If you prefer colors more saturated than default, tan turn up saturation; if you prefer more contrast than default, then turn up contrast. Other might have the opposite preferences.
