Have discovered two things already though:

  1. Sharpening is on by default, and is crude and horribly aggressive - even level 1 creates halos! I'll do my sharpening in Photoshop as usual!
  2. Resampling is also on by default, so cropped images are resized to set dimensions. Again, no thanks!

Is there anything else I should generally select/deselect, or otherwise note?

With the D800 in Capture NX2 my standard sharpening routine is:

1. In the Picture Control section set Sharpening to 0 or 1.

2. After all other editing has been completed, apply Unsharp Mask in 2 stages:

3. First stage: Intensity 70, Radius 4, Threshold 0, Opacity Lighter 55%

4. Second stage: Intensity 70, Radius 4, Threshold 0, Opacity Darker 75%
