Trying to decide if I should set my D800 to Neutral or Standard picture control now that I am using LR5 and trying to understand what happens on Import.
Normally I have the camera set to Neutral prior to opening in Capture NX2.

I have a test folder with two NEF images on it one taken in Neutral and one in Standard,I want to develop in LR without changing to any of the picture controls.In other words to process a RAW file as in CNX2 where the idea was that a Neutral file was most suitable where extra editing was to be expected.

At the Library stage immediately after import are those two files still as taken or has LR already converted them to Adobe Standard?
If so and I go to the develop section and I select Neutral or Standard in that menu will I be as close to my camera settings as possible?

Thanks for any help and please tell me if I am looking at this incorrectly.
