I recently bought LR a couple weeks ago for mainly no support on my A77II and A6000 although about 20 minutes ago I just updated C1 to 7.2.3 and it does support the A6000 but still none for the A77II. Given I have a huge job in two weeks I don't expect to see another update to support it in C1. But besides all that I am curious how color is getting handled between the programs and color settings. I shot this image about two months ago in the studio and I was shooting full length but decided to grab a quick headshot as well. So with a Passport color checker I WB off the second grey patch in both programs . Added my sharpening and all the stuff I normally do to get a final. The only tweaks I did not do is tweak any color as i want to see what the profiles do and the program does. This is basically a default test with color but nothing else as I just want to see what the colors are between them. I find this pretty interesting as i did another test internally here of a similar type of image. Now you can see what you may like or may not like but to me C1 looks a little on the yellow side and even though LR standard looks a touch magenta I kind of like it. Neutral to me maybe color wise perfect who knows but looks very boring and camera standard I just don't like.
Now here is the good news both programs look far better side by side than the last go round I had with LR2 which I threw off my system as fast as i could throw up it was that bad. Today looks like Adobe has made some real progress and has some features that are very nice as well. I don't use catalogs so that feature is worthless to me so I am basing my opinion purely on the raw processing.
Right now C1 is worthless to my A77II so I need to use LR for now and this time around I am not throwing it off my system as I kind of like the program and may just completely switch even though I have been a big C1 fan but like anything else in photography i have zero loyalty to brand, whatever works best is what i will use. Its just that simple, no one pays me a dime for any of this stuff except real clients so i can do whatever my heart wants too.
Anyway something to look at and sure I can tweak anything to look the same , different or improve upon any of the color. This is just whats coming out of the profiles.
