    Cause raw by default will be a non processed copy of your photo. If in camera u took b&w mode, it was actually in camera processed.

    ya... since you are at it, might as well do some adjustment.

    like previously said, raw = no conversion, nothing.

    so when you use raw, its what exactly the sensor see. without those vivid settings or watever settings you did on the DSLR.

    i had exactly the same situation.
    not to worry. in lightroom, under Develop>Basic, there's a greyscale feature. select it with change to to bnw. in raw, you go switch between color and greyscale.
    that's the beauty of it.
