For my D800e, I'm finding the custom profile to not always be the best choice. The dual illuminant thing never worked out, so I've got a set of single illuminant profiles - daylight, tungsten, halogen, etc.

I've been doing A/B comparisons in print, and about a quarter of the time the stock Adobe profile is better. That was NEVER true with my D700, D300, or any of the many point and shoots and micro 4/3 cameras I've profiled.

The inability to do a proper dual illuminant profile stinks. Or, the D800e is outside of the ability of the color checker passport's accuracy.
