There is a lot of discussion about the comparative sharpness of D100 and Canon D60 images. I can't speak to that issue, bit sveral weeks of shooting with a D100 has convinced me that it's not nearly as sharp as the Olympus E20N I also use. I'm not sure whether Nikon was over aggressive with application of the low pass filter or what, but I seem to be spending a lot of time using high pass and unsharp masking to get an optimally sharp image. Photographs taken with the E20N always have great snap and good accutance.
Of course, I have experimented with different sharpning option.

That's pretty much been my experience. I've switched to D60. Now, the pix are slamming! I've gotten flak on this board for posting that sentiment! As a matter of fact, check out Amateur Photographer magazine, July 20 issue. Has a comprehensive and exhaustive evaluation on the D100... I'm quoting their conclusion -- "The D100 provided me with a mixed performance of antiquated AF, imperfect metering and excellent noise control. The biggest issue, though, to be the lack of detail capture that leaves me dissappointed. I worked hard on an uninspiring day to create images I could be proud of, while the camera remained uninspired." End Quote.
