Latley I am importing CR3 and CR2 Canon RAW images in lightroom during import lightroom automatically adds lens correction on the images but only on the CR3 images. So wondering why that is? Also in the begining it seemed that the profile was not correct, like it was switched as when it added the profile to the CR3 images it created a vignetting around the image and when doing brightnes corrections it was always brighter in the middle of the image , so we had to turn of the lens profile and then the image looked ok. Now that seemed to be reversed as when turning the off the profile now it goes not in the vignetting style. So my question is why a profile on the CR3 is added but not on the CR2 . And no profile is selected to be added automatically during import.

Most of the Canon R series cameras (CR3 files) will apply the lens profiles automatically. Normally, this should not be happening unless the camera is setup to apply auto lens corrections, but for the R series cameras disabling auto lens corrections in camera setup isn't working as it should.  A bug was submitted a year or so back, but hasn't yet been fixed. That being said, there is a workaround - configure LrC camera raw default setting so that the lens corrctions profiles are switched to 'off

You have to setup camera defaults for each camera that you use. Apparently you already did that for your CR3 producing camera, but not for your CR2 producing camera.

thanks for the quick reply, but i have not set up any defaults for a specific camera. I was not even aware I could do that. I checked the prefrences and it is set ot Adobe Defaults and the override specific cameras option is not ticked. 

so maybe the adobe defaults do that with the CR3 but not with the CR2.

Possibly. Just setup the camera defaults yourself.

What are the precise camera models?  Please post screenshots of the Lens Corrections panel (with the Profile tab selected) for a sample .cr2 and .cr3.  That will quickly focus the conversation on what's going on.

From your description, the CR2 files are being imported correctly.

thanks I will do the workarounds and hope the issue will be fixed soon, The CR3 files are from the R5 so which would make sense and the CR2 files are from a 5DMarkIII.
