How/where (what app) are you viewing the resulting JPEG?

Are you converting the profile from ProPhoto to sRGB when you export?

I click on the image, in which it will be launched into "Preview" app in Mac OS. My iMac is calibrated using Spyder 4 Pro. I have also uploaded the image into Facebook (via Facebook web not LR) and view it in Chrome and Safari browser in the same iMac environment also shows the subdue colors.

I converted my raw captured to sRGB. However I am sure the from profile, i believe it should be ProPhoto which LR uses.

I reconvert my recent capture using 5DM3, Nex6 and Nex5, I did not notice any difference in colors using "preview" (at least I did not spot it). The difference is all were set to capture in Adobe RGB unlike G7x which has no settings that I can change to do so (i could not find a way).
