Nex 5N - Magenta Cast

I am using lightroom 4.3 with RAW files from my NEX 5N

I have seen that even when leaving white balace to "As shot". I get a magenta cast in my images.

Unable to figure out what settings to use

A couple of sample shots.

I remember having this problem with my D7000 when I did not use WB as "as shot" but chose stuff like Daylight from lightroom. It would set tint to +10 which led to a red/magenta cast. However, here the case looks different. I never shoot JPEG, only RAW and use lightroom for processing. Any tips would be great. Is there some kind of camera profile I can download or something in lightroom? I am using "Use camera landscape" profile.
