Imported RAW files from EOS R/R5/R6 have always lens correction enabled

Why did I just buy the above 3 models?

When I import the RAW file directly or I convert it to DNG

By default, Lens Configuration is always turned on, which makes me very uncomfortable when I have to adjust photos and reset

The software I use is Lightroom and Camera Raw

I have attached a picture sample to the article

It's honestly a sad feature if it can't be turned off

Greetings,

I am not a Lr user, but you appear to be using a lens profile (Adobe Canon 16-35mm f4L IS USM) v2 which includes Remove CA and apply lens geometry, etc.  I suggest you make your own recipe and turn these off if you don't like them.

This is the default RAW file I imported from the camera, I did not apply any presets

Which version of Lightroom are you running?

What happens when try to you change “Setup”?  Right now it says “Default”.

I do not have any R-series cameras, but I do have a 1D X Mark III DSLR and an M200 mirrorless camera. I have also had many bodies before these.

Never has the lens correction feature been automatically on by default.

 

1. do you have lens corrections turned on in your camera bodies?

2. Have you configured LrC to apply lens corrections during import?

3. Have you configured LrC to apply Camera Settings to the RAW files during import? I don't know if that feature also applies in-camera lens corrections since i never turn them on in camera. I will run a test and see.

4. I just tested my M200. Turned on in-camera lens correction. Imported RAW file into LrC. lens corrections in LrC not turned on.

I am guessing that it is either a "feature" of the R-series combined with LrC or an inadvertent import preset setting. Hopefully a forum member with an R-series can pipe in.

Hello, John.

I haven't used LR for a few years, but I use other Raw editors, primarily DPP 4 as it does almost everything I need for wildlife and macro.

With that said, the R5, R6 and R6II all allow lens corrections to be disabled in camera and upon import to DPP it's all disabled but can be applied. Same applies for my other Raw editors unless I use a custom camera or lens profile. My wife applies some lens correction on her R6II when using the non L RF 100-400 and some of her lighter EF converted glass. I haven't found the need to use LC of any sort with my RF L lenses.

Hi Newton. Thanks for that info.

OP must have an inadvertent preset configured and applied during import.

Since I do not use any Adobe software and have EF lenses instead of RF, this second hand information may or may not be helpful. I speculate that Adobe might follow the Canon practice of not permitting distortion correction to be turned off for some lenses.

https://opticallimits.com/canon_eos_ff/1113-canonrf24105f471?start=1

"However, in all fairness, Canon doesn't even allow disabling distortion correction for in-camera JPEGs. If we follow this guidance, the results are actually more "normal". There's still some very heavy vignetting at 24mm at f/4 but one stop down, it's quite acceptable actually."

That was my initial thought, but then I saw that OP was showing a screenshot with the EF 16-35 f/4.

I suspect John has the right idea.  The “default” setting is probably the “As Shot” configuration from the camera.  I use Color Checker software, so that [Setup] box always comes up with the camera model or whatever name I wish to type in.  

Color Checker is a godsend, especially when you shooting with multiple bodies.  Different models or even the same model can have slightly different colors.  Once you calibrate the image sensors with Color Checker, all cameras will have the nearly identical colors.
