isn't there supposed to be a color profile for this kind of stuff? does oly not provide this information to adobe or anyone else? what kind of world do we live in where this is okay? how do professional photographers deal with this stuff? grrrrrrrrrrr

No one provides this "stuff"...why would they give information away that can help competitors? OK, they give away some basic info of how to generate an image, but all the proprietary code that makes up "Oly colours" they keep secret. Every camera keeps their best stuff secret.

Actually Adobe includes color profiles that do match the picture styles provided by Canon or Nikon. So I can load a Nikon RAW and select a color profile that will match the JPEG almost exactly. Sadly, they don't do this for other camera brands (Olympus, Panasonic, Sony, etc...).
