Anyone able to share C1 vs Adobe-Huelight conversions of R5/R6 photos?

It's a tale as old as time - Adobe Color raw conversions of R5 and R6 files look kind of wonky. I'm having to push and pull files in LR a lot to get results I like where C1 just gets it very close to right out of the gate. It doesn't even seem to be consistent in a way I can save a preset for, instead every lighting condition seems to bring its own weird mix of issues to correct.

At the same time, LR offers much better DAM in particular. For as much hate as Adobe gets being subscription only, C1 is itself surprisingly expensive and I'm reluctant to pay up. The other option would be to buy Huelight's profiles, which I've done in the past for other cameras, but I've found that his colors can be more muted/neutral than I'd like and require a "punchiness" preset to get to a good place.

All that said, it would be nice if people could share a few photos comparing C1 vs Huelight conversions to give me a sense of how the default color rendition compares.

(P.S. I'm assuming someone's going to chime in with "but I like Adobe Color just fine, here's my pretty photo with it!" Great, I'm happy for you, but I have spent a lot of time with this and I'm not interested in seeing what someone else is getting out of default ACR profiles.)
