I'm delving into the deep, I've been an SLR owner for maybe 30 years, started with a Pentax P50, then a Nikon F50, D50, D40, now D5000. Ok, I'm at consumer level, but really enjoy the heroic clunk of a shutter.

My query is to get opinions on the Sharpness and Saturation on the D5000 picture settings. I was wondering, why these need adjusting?

Shouldn't a D5000 and a 35mm 1.8 lens be sharp enough? I'm still wondering why my wife's $200 Ixus is producing results that my D5000 needs adjusting to achieve!

PS I haven't even found my ideal settings yet, I'm still learning the D5000!
