Re: So the next time,

I agree with Saschamagus, how again is it a fair comparison if you are taking the RAW through IDC and then take the out of camera JPEG and add even more sharpening via PS?

The point you were trying to prove originally was how JPEG looks straight out of camera.  If you are going to add more sharpening, you do so to both.

You seem to not quite understand the full capabilities of sharpening, both when it comes to RAW and JPEG.  JPEG already have some amount of sharpening applied in camera, and more or less can be added in camera.  RAW files have no sharpening applied at all coming out of camera, that has to be applied by the converter.  The +1/-1 approach in camera is very generic and doesn't explain much whereas the converters and editors, as you have seen, go into far more detail and complexity.

The RAW image still could use more sharpening.  What settings are you using?

The JPEG has too much sharpening as evidence of the halos around everything.  What unsharp mask settings did you use for this?  And why did you feel it needed even more sharpening than how it appeared out of camera?
