Re: Here's what I'm guessing you like...

OK - then that helps.  Definitely try the settings above I listed.  The only difference in my own settings vs those I recommended to you is that I keep sharpening at -1 and saturation at -1 in Vivid mode, because I tend to like to add any sharpening in post processing rather than in-camera, and sometimes I like to keep the saturation a little more subdued.

Most of the examples I posted were ones with those settings, and in post-processing, I tended towards a little deeper saturation.  The shot of the paddlewheeler boat at sunset is actually an in-camera HDR photo - most of the others were with DRO set to Auto.  Two cameras are represented there - the NEX3 and NEX-5N - the F3 should be quite similar to the 5N with the same settings.  Most of those were with the 18-55mm kit lens, though there are some manual lens shots mixed in, and one or two with the 55-210mm eMount lens.  So it's not really lens-dependent - in your case, I think it's going to be more about getting the camera set up to deliver the type of output you prefer.
