Re: D600 raw photos look washed out in Lightroom, Good in ViewNX

I use the following settings in LR 4 for my D800e, perhaps it will work as well for the D600.

Input sharpening 25

radius .5

Detail 25

Camera Neutral

Clarity and vibrance  +10

Blacks   -9

This punches up the pic just enough from a base of neutrality to work about 90% of the time, with not much left to be done other than pull down highlghts or raise shadows a bit. 
The ACR raw conversion is way smoother than View/CNX2 this time around, which is a switch.  A welcome, labor-saving one at that.
