I don't think they (PBs sharpening settings) are out of date at all. What's out of date? How? That's silly. It's still the same cameras: X-T1 and X-T2. I'm a busy semi-pro, I don't have the time to diddle with Capture one or any thing else at this point in time. My goal is to shoot, edit, distribute and sell images. Period. Not play with software. I find C1 to be to difficult to use - but to give it it's fair shake I only gave it a week or so before I had to get back to work.
Actually, not silly at all since LR is not static. That was the entire reason for this post, I've found that over time, the sharpening in LR has not only become awful, but causing otherwise good images to look worse because of the tool.
I do not consider myself a pixel peeper at all, but noticing the strange texture in my portraits has sent me down this path.
I have noticed that if the portrait is very highly lit with a low ISO, LR's sharpening and PB's settings work well. At higher ISO's, things fall off quickly. If there is noise or grain, it squirts artifacts all over the image to the point of taking away from the image.
Moving from LR to Capture One is not a trivial task. I spent 1-2 hours a day learning the tool and verifying what it can/can't do over the last month. LR wins on a lot of fronts, but when it comes down to pure picture quality, Capture One wins by a very large margin. Enough so where I'm willing to go through the pain of switching and having a less efficient workflow. For me, the image quality takes precedence.
