Can you answer a couple of questions:
When you used your 350D did you have a custom camera profile for use in Qimage? There is not one available yet for the 500D so that prompts me to ask what have you what raw preferences are set to in Qimage? It looks as though you may have sRGB set rather than Adobe RGB.
Using Adobe RGB will give more saturated colours than sRGB, and a custom profile will be better still.
Check you raw settings and let us know how you get on.

I did not use a camera custom profile for the 350d.
Raw preference is set (now) to Adobe - that makes it slightly better (after rebuilding thumbs) than the thumbs I posted (I tried sRGB before starting this topic, checking out the options). Still, I'm not greatly impressed.

Lately I switched from Canon 350d to 500d, and now I find that Qimage handles saturation different: colors seem washed out.
When I convert the CR2's to jpg's with for instance FSViewer I get pictures that look natural, and when viewed and printed with Qimage they look fine.
The thumbs in FSViewer of the CR2's look better already than those in Qimage. When I save the CR2's in Qimage as jpg's they are under-saturated too.
With CR2's from the 350d the colors (saturation) was fine.
I added some thumbs that (hopefully) show what I mean.
The jpg's on the left, the CR2's on the right. Especially the reds and greens look dull.
Does anybody have an explanation?
