Canon 6D sharpness settings

Which setting in 'Sharpness' should i use for best results.  I am now shooting with it set to maximum sharpness.  Does this just depend on personal preference, or is there a 'BEST' setting?

"...is there a 'BEST' setting?"

 

There is a "best" setting but that may not be it.  It depends on what you are doing. I always shoot Raw format so there is no sharp setting. It is set in post which is where it belongs and where you know what the "best" setting is.

Less is always best. This is what default [settings] are for. Defaults are what has been [determined] to be the best starting point. What is the best end result is up to you.

Maximum sharpness is almost never a good thing because it removes details.

Sharpness is global and most of the time you don’t want that. In post you can mask out what should not be sharpened.
