What is your JPG settings on K-7?

Hi All,

Wondering how many of you are shooting in JPG. I am a lazy guy who like to use JPG. But for the new K-7, I am confused with its so many controls on IQ. Could you pls share your settings, like megapixel, quality, mode (I use bright now), sharpness, etc?

In particular, I don't understand about the "Fine Sharpness". My photos look better to me when not using it. Any ideas?

Many thanks,

I shot some in Natural with contrast +1 and Sharpness +2. The colours were horrible. I then changed to RAW and converted to JPEG with PSE. The results were very natural colours. I would be interested in what others have tried.,

Shoot RAW myself, NATURAL with +1 constrast and -4 sharpness for ISO 800-1600 and 0 sharpness for <ISO 800. Don't need FINE sharpness at all.
