Just got the D70 a couple of weeks ago and am playing with it all the time. I noticed the pictures were not as sharp as my Canon A70, so I began playing with the sharpening controls on the D70. My question is, it appears that there are 2 ways to get the camera to sharpen the image. One is to set the option to "Sharp" in the "Optimizing Images" menu. The other way is to go into the "custom" setting in this menu and you can adjust the sharpness in increments. Is one way better than the other? If not, how much more sharp is the photo using the first method I described compared to the second?

My preference is to turn off all sharpening in the camera. The algorithms in Photoshop (or whatever you are using) are more sophisticated than what is in the camera. I'd rather be in control and make sharpening a deliberate manual step.

I certainly agree with Gordon. You will most probably have the best results using the sharpening tools in software rather than in your Nikon digital camera.
