The last few releases of Lightroom and ACR in Photoshop under read colour temperatures by 6%. I have used various Nikon DSLRs at various fixed colour temperatures and the results are consistent. Breeze Browser and Nikon Capture NX2 both read the colour temperatures correctly. The problem definitely seems to lie with ACR.

If you mean the colors reported in the White-Balance sliders when As Shot is selected, those are based on Adobe-rendering with Adobe Camera Profiles and will likely be different than the Nikon-reported numbers which are for the Nikon rendering engine in camera and in Nikon-licensed software. BB is likely just reporting what Nikon embeds in the files or is using Nikon DLLs.

So the issue is not that one or the other is wrong, just that the two rendering systems won't be the same as each other.

Or are you talking about something else being different, like when you eye-dropper on a neutral patch the patch is pinkish.
