Here are some values for capture sharpening in ACR which should translate directly into Lr.

For detailed images like landscapes etc:

Amount: 70-100

Radius: 0.5-0.6

Detail: 50-80

Masking: 40-60

For images with less detail like portraits etc:

Amount: 30-60

Radius: 1.5

Detail: 20-30

Masking: 70-90

You will probably want to experiment a bit.

Output sharpening in Lr is a black box afaik, ie you have no control.

Results are reputedly good though.

How come you are abandoning NX2? Just curiious.
