What LR4 settings would emulate look of D600 NEF files processed in NX2
I realize that D600 NEF RAW profile in LR4 is still a beta but I was wondering if anyone here might have fiddled with LR4 setup so that D600 RAW files opened in LR4 would have a look similar to the same files opened in NX2?
This question was asked by another poster in the D600 forum... just thought LRers might have tried this out...

That's going to depend A LOT on how one's camera is set up. NX2 reads the camera settings and applies them to NEFs upon open. Lightroom doesn't do that. So this is a matter of setting up your LR defaults for this camera so that they match your settings. For example, if the camera is set to Vivid colors and high sharpening, you won't by default see anything like that in LR because it defaults to the Adobe Standard profile, which is pretty neutral and includes little sharpening. If you set the default profile to be, say, Camera Vivid, you'll get something quite different, to say the least. You can also create your own custom profile and/or processing presets so that can be applied automatically upon import. For example, you might set sharpening to 50, radius to 0.7, detail to 35 and profile to D2x-mode2, and then tell the import operation to apply that saved preset on every file imported.
Of course, if your camera is set in some other way, you'll still be wildly different, but obviously this is a season-to-suit type of operation.
