"Picture Control Settings -- Recommendations?"

I've had my D800 for a couple months now and have not been too impressed with the default Picture Control settings in which all the settings are set to zero (except Sharpness, which is set to the left or right of zero). I've tried adjusting the individual settings but am still not happy with the results. While I am aware that everyone has their own preferences, I'm just looking for a starting point. What settings do you use for Landscape, Portrait, Vivid, Standard, and Neutral?

Edited to include: BTW, I prefer to shoot in JPEG, but let's not get into any debates about which is better and leave that for another time :) FYI: I prefer Coke over Pepsi!

Looking forward to any recommendations!

Thanks!

Chris
