It seems ever since I updated Lightroom Classic to v10.3, Lens Profile Correction and Remove Chromatic Aberration are automatically applied upon import. I've searched and tried chaging the Raw Defaults in Preferences to Camera Defaults and Adobe Default, and both still apply these two settings upon Import. Does anyone know how disable this? I prefer uploading my RAW files without any settings applied during import.

The Canon RF 24-105mm F4L IS USM is one of the few RF lenses that Adobe has a matching lens profile. So it's not using a built-in lens profile with this specific Canon RF lens. The best solution is to create a Develop preset that only has the Lens Corrections selected and Enable Profile Corrections unchecked in the raw file when you create it. Then follow the below instructions to change the Raw Defaults using a preset. This will effectively turn off all lens corrections on future imports. https://helpx.adobe.com/in/lightroom-classic/help/raw-defaults.html...

What camera?

Did you look over Import Presets (lower right of screen) to see if you have one that sets this?

Canon R5

 

The Import Preset bar at the bottom of the Import screen says None.

If you are experiencing the Built-in lens profile applied as displayed in the screen capture then that is a profile that has been created by your camera manufacturer. Most likely you are using a mirrorless camera model, the profile will be applied automatically by LrC at import and there is no option for you to turn it off. this applies to the majority of mirroless camera models.

Exactly, and why I asked what camera was being used.

The boxes are checked upon import, nothing is grayed out and there isn't a note stating "Built-in Lens Profile applied". The screenshot below is how the Lens Corrections section looks immediately after import. Those boxes are checked automatically when I import from my card ever since I updated to v10.3.

So what if you turn off the two checkboxes above, make a preset. Then select that preset on Import.

Yes that is definitely an option. I just don't know why this is automatically applied to all imports and not made an option to turn off. I prefer my RAW files untouched when I first import them.

It's a known bug with EOS R5 that's affecting most, if not all RF lenses, and is currently listed on Adobe's internal bug base.

 

For some it's just an irritation and for others, especially those who build 1:1 previews for lots of images on import, it's adding around 1 second per image to the import/preview building process (i.e. an additional 8+ minutes for a 500 image import)

 

FWIW, I have the same issue with:

 

RF 15-35mm F2.8

RF 24-105mm F4

RF 70-200 F2.8

RF 100-500mm F4.5-7.1

 

At present, the way to prevent the lens corrections being applied during import is to apply a preset during import or change the LrC default settings for the camera as described by Todd, et al.

This seems to be the only solution. I don't know why this changed with the update, I just wish I could import my files untouched from the camera and I control what changes I want to make to the RAW files. I wish Adobe would just make an option to apply lens corrections upon import instead of assuming people just want them applied on every import.

I have my Raw Defaults Lens Profile Corrections set for Distortion 0 and Vignetting 75. I only change those settings on image files that exhibit "visible" distortion or vignetting. See why at the below post. Remove Chromatic Aberration can be left checked as I have yet to see any detrimental efects to date (2007-2021) with ANY image file.
