I noticed an interesting comment on Rockwell re picture control.(Z7 review)..he said his test jpegs were "over contrasty "as he had the sharpness set to +5. For years I have had all my Nikons set at +9 and taken many tens of thousands of wedding pics. I have always maintained that Nikons come out the factory set soft ..at +3. So for those of you who shoot JPEG with Z what have you put the sharpness too ? I also noted my d850 came set with clarity at +1. This function wrecks the pictures IMHO seeming to do something funny to the exposure so I set it back to 0.
So anyone who shoots JPEG on Z can you give us a heads up. PS just re read this and he does have sharp at +9 but something called mid range sharpening at +5 causes a problem . once an idiot always an idiot !
