Pentax k-5 Lightroom Settings

Does anyone have a predefined settings setup when import PEF or DNG into Lightroom to be the closest possible to DCU? I've found that if i shoot RAW, and create a TIFF in DCU and then import both RAW and TIFF into Lightroom the images are different in: color (saturation, vibration and shift in colors), contrast, detail (sharpness and noise).

I don't want to this process all the time, it takes too long, and too much space in disk.

Any ideas? Sorry if there already another thread with this.

I shoot in PEF on K-5 and simply import them into Lightroom with some preset sharpness and fill light.

For now i have as standard:

On Basic Tab:
Blacks = 5
Brightness = 55
Contrast = 40
Clarity = 10
Vibrance = 20
Saturation = 7

On Detail Tab:
Amount of Sharpening = 50
Detail of Sharpening = 50

But still something is not right :S

Clarity = 10
Vibrance = 20
Saturation = 7

Pictures would look far too saturated with those settings here.

I think from memory the standard contrast setting for PEF import is 25
