Adobe only creates the camera profiles for the major brands and only once in a while generates profiles for cameras not i the top three. Whether or not there are camera matching profiles is not part of the "supported" thing. That just means it has a Adobe standard profile and it can read the raw files. Probably about half the supported cameras don't have camera matching profiles.
OK, I understand that. But...
1- I consider Panasonic one of the "major brands", and clearly Adobe too because they support the GH5 color profiles...
2- Color profiles are exactly the same for the GH4 and the G85 (same sensor)...
3- Also, the G7 used to work (same sensor too)...
4- And the color science is the same used on the GH5 (same Panasonic main color styles)...
Why the G85 doesn't work then?
You have to ask Adobe. They appear to really only do Canon, Nikon, and Sony and other cameras only when they get around to it or perhaps when one of the engineers happens to have that camera. Even for the big three some models get skipped. This takes quite a bit of works and they clearly prioritize. It is not that hard to hack the camera profiles from Another camera to work with this one in dng profile editor (a free download from Adobe) or you should request this camera get some profiles at http://feedback.photoshop.com Adobe engineers actually hang out there contrary to this forum where it is just other users.
So, because the DMC-G8 (G85/G80/G81) cameras don't have color profiles on Lightroom, I decompiled the Adobe color profiles for the GH5 and I recompiled them to match the camera string and it worked!
I was wondering if you guys could just double check those and provide them "out of the box" with the future CameraRaw updates. Also, it would be awesome if you guys could double check this color profiles with Panasonic
Here is my color profiles package:

You're not talking to Adobe in this forum.

We are just users like yourself. Here is a link to the forum where you can make such suggestions and where the Adobe engineers are likely to pay closer attention:
Cool. I will post there. I am also with an Adobe support guy checking it out
