I am wondering if the sharpness setting from 0 to 9 is really from little or no processing to extreme processing. Could it be that 4 and 5 are little or no processing with 0 being soft focus and 9 being extra crispy. After all, back in the day, things were done to achieve soft focus for portraits etc. It would seem logical that the DSLRs would have processing available to create the same effect.

By the way, when I Googled "D5100 soft focus problem" (or something like that), I came across some interesting sites. One in particular discussed the idea the the focus system depends on contrasts in the focus area. It also suggested that the focusing sensor might not be dead on the spot in the rangefinder and even had instructions on how to adjust it yourself (well, better you than me, pal. I'm not going to muck around with the innards of my camera)
