450D my best settings

I got my 450D since 2 weeks and I the settings I like are:

when I shoot JPEG:

quality L
sharpness +5
contrast +1
saturation +1
color tone 0

aeb 0
sRGB for fun, adobe RGB for portraits
red eye off
2-> 1
8-> 1

AF: one shot
metering: everything but partial metering!
I use external 430 EX

and listen here I am using an EF 80-200 which is 15 years old (sinse I purchased my first EOS 1000) and I am having great fun.

When I shot RAW:

I am still trying to find a good setup for RAW, I still get very soft images uncomparable with JPEG.
Any suggestions? for RAW how do you setup LR or ACR?.

share, share, share....

EOS 1000, S45, S80, G9, EOS450D
35-80; 80-200; 18-55 IS
