Best Mode for K20D?

Ok, I have my new K20D but am wondering if same applies to the 20 as it did the 10, Natural is best (I have it custome set for now to natural with a +1 fine-sharpness
The K20D offers alot more options but I fig I shoot RAW anyways so I can adjust the settings afterwards (mainly sharpness, hugh and saturation differences in the modes) from what I can tell.

I haven't figured the best way for my K20, but I had my K100 set to natural so that the jpeg on the display best matched the raw output.

None of that stuff gets added to the raw file anyway. If you use something other than PPL for your raw conversion then you won't even be using the embedded jpeg as the preview. I have actually done some raw+jpeg shooting just because the jpegs out of this camera are really good.
