Poor font rendering..

I think there is still room for improvement in terms of the 'contrast' or 'vibrancy' of fonts in JavaFX. Take a look at this example:
I'm running Windows 7. What you are seeing is a screenshot of the default font, zoomed in 600%. The top text is JavaFX 8 (latest build as of 3 days ago). The bottom text is Outlook but could just as easily have been Firefox, Chrome, Word, or Eclipse SWT - they're all indistinguishable to me.
The JavaFX text doesn't look as vibrant. In particular the smoothing algorithm seems to be making poor colour choices for the vertical strokes. At 100% the difference is subtle but important.
I have the text fill set to Color.BLACK and the font smoothing type set to LCD. Is there something else I can configure to get more vibrant-looking fonts?

Font rendering in FX8 is using the native rasterizer so the glyphs should be identical to what the operating system is rendering. That said, we may have a bug. Please enter a JIRA with sample code and a screen shot of the bad rendering. That will give us something concrete to work with.
