Are you happy with your D5100s IQ ?

Maybe it's just me, I don't know but for some reason I seem to have a love/hate relationship with the D5100. Keep in mind I am a former owner of the D200, D3000 and Olympus EPL1.

On the plus side: Noise handling is superb.

On the negative side: Images are soft, color leaves something to be desired and images have a very flat/washed out look. I honestly have no interest in processing raw files anymore so I am trying to get the best JPEGs possible OOC. I have played around with the picture control settings, but I thus far I haven't been satisfied. My files from my former D200 were always crisp, contrasty and colorful and the same can be said for the D3000 as well.

Like I said, could just be me. Thoughts ?
