Do you sharpen most of your raw files in LR? I went to a lightroom seminar by Scot Kelby and he said that most raw images need to be sharpened where as jpegs are sharpened in camera already. I was just wondering your thoughts on sharpening all images? Thanks!

Yup, I sharpen 99.9% of all my RAW files in Lightroom. Some I will apply further sharpening to in PS too.

There's a bit more then just 'amount' to LR sharpening since version 1.1: Click (external link).

I pull back the NR in LR however, since it tends to leave a blurry mess at it's defaults IMO.
