This conversation has been merged. Please reference the main conversation: Lightroom: Camera profiles: Why is only Adobe Standard available?

I had a Pentax K-7 and tested LR 3.6 time ago. LR3.x has a "Camera Standard" Profile for this Camera (also K10D and others), which I liked a lot. Way better than the Adobe Profile. I noticed that LR4 still have this profiles.

Now I have a Pentax K-5... I bought LR 4 and... suprise!! there is no Camera Standard Profile for K-5, only the Adobe Profile.

Is Adobe going to create a Camera Profile for the K-5, as they made for many other Pentax models?

You can adjust the calibration how you like to make it more like the in-camera profile:

Use a JPEG image of a colour swatch to make it easy to match the "camera standard".

Or, you can make your own profile (it's easy):

Adobe just averages out the sensors it creates profiles for, so sometimes your sensor will respond in a way that makes it an outlier, anyway.
