probably because you're shooting in RAW. In which case, Picture Styles won't apply, unless you apply them in post processing.

You can use DPP to get the Picture Style as set in the Camera.

I've been using Lightroom and then applying a B&W preset (or custom tweaking) as necessary.

FYI: The preview jpg within the RAW will be B&W, if you use Lightroom, you will initially see your photos as B&W until Lightroom renders its own preview. A little wierd at first, but once you understand what is going on, it makes sense.

Usually what I do is import the RAWs first, then I manually navigate to the CF card and pick all the JPGs out, put them into their own folder, then import them separately.

Also, FWIW, I've had really good results letting the camera take pictures in B&W, and at least when you shoot RAW + JPG you still have a color file if you think you can do the conversion better. :)
