5DII Firmware WARNING!
Jan 8, 2009

For those using sRAW (1 or 2) and ACR or Lightroom, if you update your firmware to 1.07, your colors will be off. Raw & sRAW will have different colors, even with the exact same settings. The sRAW files have a VERY magenta hue to them, and this gets worse as the iso goes up, and especially worse (unmanageably bad) if you need to bump the exposure up later.

Infact, its actually reverted to the exact same color difference (RAW vs sRAW) as before the ACR 5.2 & LR 2.2 update. Meaning, the same as using the DNG converter with older versions of either. When I first got my 5DII and noticed the color difference back here:

My guess is that we'll be stuck with this until Adobe updates the 5DII profiles for their software.
