to get the widest dynamic range you're to shoot flat with contrast saturation and sharpness down to minimum. that way you can grade the color in post. if I don't want to color grade I stick with neutral. you can google about shooting flat and there are details about camera setting and profile editor for more custom look

The more important thing than color profile, IMO, is white balance. This is one thing you need to grasp so you don't spend so much time correcting the color. Always shoot at a fixed color temperature, AWB is a no-no!!!

Don't forget to use your Custom setting to switch b/t sceneries. Plan ahead.

Great tips. By sceneries you mean sports and landscape, etc..?

In a single event occur both indoor and outdoor, it's quick to set your different WB and exposure setting to your Custom program/dial ahead of time.

If superflat is beyond your scope to handle in post, try the marvels cine v3.4 profile. Version 3.4 maintains color fidelity better than superflat or neutral. I personally prefer superflat or extraflat from Eugenia's Rants and Thoughts blog. Then again I like color grading my images.

Recently, I shoot a lot of stuff at 4300K with 28-135mm f/3.5-5.6. I find the color to provide a neutral mood, no so warm/yellow or so cold.

WB on different lenses is also another concern and it's best to get the same types of lens. My lens set are not consistent bc of different make/model and I have to eye ball the WB when shooting with one than one camera.
