Your default Lightroom settings. What do you change?

I thought it might be interesting to see what other people's default Lightrooom develop settings might be. I.E. the initial RAW conversion ones, or do you leave it on LR's default setting?

For example, I hate the fact that it applies 25 sharpening to my images, as I prefer to apply this in Photoshop much later in the PP workflow. Also, as I now shoot mainly with a Nex-7 and Zeiss 24 lens these days, I apply a global -25 in the red/blue CA setting.

Obviously, I change this if I'm importing from my Canon and a different lens.

I'd even thought about disabling all adjustments and importing the RAW files as... well, RAW, but I find that applying basic curve contrast is not a bad start - it can always be altered on an individual image basis.
