Re: D500 sharpening?

I use Lightroom for sharpening. My typical settings for RAW files are the following:

.                        My Import Default       Typical higher setting

Amount                       25                                       40

Radius                         1.0                                      1.5

Detail                           50 (LR default)               25 - 75 (depending on noise)

Masking                      85                                     80 - 90

I've been using these settings for many years on many different cameras, and it seems to work equally well (for my tastes) on the D500.

I'm a big fan of masking. No need to sharpen anything but edges, and I have found masking at 85 to be a pretty good all-purpose setting.
