I agree and disagree! In many regards the flesh details are more true but the RED saturation is overwhelming! In direct sun light or with the internal flash, I have dozens of photos that prove this. I have yet to find a way to reduce the red saturation using Photoshop that produces a print I am satisfied with. The best results for me come from photos of people (flesh tones) in the shade. These look natural and warm and require little if any touching up.Regarding sharpness, the camera provides complete control over sharpening from none at all to varying degrees all the way to what it deems to be "intelligent" sharpening. I've use the auto-sharp with great results. Images produces without any sharp are super soft and I've yet to figure out a way to sharpen as well as the camera on this duds in Photoshop.Good Luck!..
Can you ploease tell me how where I can contact the Lazer Soft software company?.

Portraits are ALWAYS better on another camera. That's why a Hasselblad shoots such beautiful pictures unless, of course, you own one! I taped a piece of gelatin filter over the internal flash on my 990..it's flesh colored. And, BOY, are the portraits nice! But, then again, I don't like the internal flash becuase it often causes too much red eye. So I don't use it. But that gel's there if I need it...
