Sharper images in lightroom should be expected as it applies it's own sharpening unless you turn that feature off (in lightroom).

Think of it this way, the RAW file is the data making up your image without any processing. Your raw converter may apply different levels of sharpening, contrast, saturation, colour tone and perhaps even noise reduction. Every raw converter handles the raw file a little differently. As a result you may see differences in the same raw file opened in DPP, Lightroom, Photoshop, DXO Optics, Bibble etc.

Thanks for your clarification. I know that I can change some settings, such as style, WB, NR, etc., by using the RAW converter. I also assumed that the RAW converter uses the EXIF, such as ISO, Aperture, Shutter, WB, Style etc., to display the image file.
