Okay, I overdid it, for my own images I never use this profile. Second attempt, but I would be surprised if you liked the colors this time.
I haven't used the 5dII a lot but I think the files needed less adjustments.
Colors are important to me, but I don't care too much about color accuracy. I edit on the cheapest (140€) non TN panel I could find.
I always found it your 5dII images stood out because of their realism.
Maybe you could post Aperture Images and we will try to replicate your results in LR.
Even though, you twos' images looks really great to me, reading people liike Philip and Samuli etc who with strong post process skill struggle with color of camera confirm that sensor profile indeed make difference, especially for whom trying to achieve fidelity in image.
I am glad not all can accept that "all camera are behave the same in digital age as long as you calibrate it, proof it" especially for people sensitive with color. some camera is just better, some sucks.
If shooting in studio with ample light under consistent WB, I agree the issue is really easy to deal with. but not landscape, everyday images under all light condition.

And yes, I really struggle with A7/A7r images. These cameras are like "shiny plastic or dull", and I find it hard to produce realism. Looking images in A7/A7r Image thread it seems I'm not alone with this issue. But there has also been good neutral realistic images, so cameras are capable of delivering. Lightroom standard profiles give quite weird images, and profiling at shooting location improves situation, but won't solve issues completely. Hopefully I'll learn before 2014 shooting season really starts.
Samuli, I enjoy your A7 images, If your goal is matching your 5DII images, I feel you can try turning down saturation (especially green), contrast, or clarity a little bit. You might need negative slider input in those given profile. This is just gross feeling between your 5DII and A7 images. But generally speaking, I don't feel they are that different. and enjoy the way it is. I know many people mentioned this to you already since you start post in A7 thread. People tend to be reluctant to do/see any change, especially in color, (just like this case, we all have your 5DII images in mind ) even though, there is no right or wrong: this can be seen in M9 vs M240 wild debate on internet.
My 2 cents. and in no way my PP skill can be close to yours or people who comment your A7 images. so please don't take it as offense to you or people who comment your A7 and 5DII results
