I'm going to guess that's default NR on the left. There seems to be a decent amount of luminance smearing that isn't there when NR is set to NR -2.

You're right - I'm still learning the best JPEG settings, so it could certainly be better.

FWIW, here are the JPEG settings I'm using:

Film Simulation = Astia

DR = 100 (I like the enhanced DR settings for JPEG, but leave it turned off for better raw capture)

Color = 0

Sharpness = +1

Highlight tone = -2

Shadow tone = -1

Noise reduction = 0

I'll certainly try turning down noise reduction to -2.

I'm pretty happy with the JPEG engine, anyway, but I'm pretty much a raw "tinkerer", so happy to have a better raw engine in the upcoming C1 release.

Hope that lights a fire under Adobe to upgrade their processing, as well!
