Direct conversion from one profile to another within the app isn't so bad, but 
you can do better with Argyll. Photoshop's gamut warning tool is pretty useful. 
Soft proofing can be <i>much</i> better done with Argyll -- just convert the 
image to your printer's space, and then open that file in Photoshop as normal. 
If you like what you see, send it to the printer without any further color 
transformations (which can be a real bitch with Photoshop, but is thankfully 
trivial with Canon's ImagePROGRAPH print plugin).

But my biggest complaint with Adobe's color management is the horrific mess 
they make of RAW photo processing. It's just completely hopeless from the 
get-go and at every step of the way. If you like the "look" it gives you, 
great...but if you don't, welcome to the rabbit hole....
