    Keeping the original post but letting people know I think I have it solved now (see below)

    RAW has an unassigned color space. The color space setting will only affect the jpeg output.

    Sorry yes, I got confused and meant TIFF from RAW. I've edited the post.

    What do you mean by RGB color? sRGB is RGB too! Isn't there something missing from your description? Another color space should have a longer name than just RGB!

    He probably means Adobe RGB.

    In which case, I have all my working color spaces set to Adobe RGB for color matching and better color representation.
    Although I'm not on a GF1, it should apply to every single camera nevertheless.

    Sorry I should have been more specific and said Adobe RGB (1998).

    Right so I've put my original post in quotes so it is still there, not to confuse people by removing it.

    So if I understand correctly now, since I shoot RAW there is no assigned colour profile because it is RAW. When ACR opens the files it must default to Adobe RGB (1998) to get the most colours when saving a file to something like TIFF or JPEG, would this assumption be correct?
    I think this may be where user design could help, if I select RAW on my camera it should grey out the colour profile selection since it is irrelevant, this is what caused me confusion.
    I think my issue is solved now, though it really was more a lack of understanding than a real problem.

    Shane Hurlburt and Philip Bloom both recommend Adobe RGB...not that I mindlessly follow them but they seam to be on the cutting edge of DSLR's. I recently switched to Adobe RGB, not a huge difference but whatever.
