Lightroom imports images with low exposure.

I just recently came across an issue where Lightroom started importing my images with the exposure lower than the image should be. The exposure slider is at it's default 0 value, but for some reason the real value is lowered by -1. (All images are RAW files.)

 

When looking at the metadata in Lightroom, all values are exactly the same to what the camera says (i.e shutter speed, aperture & ISO), but the histogram shifts a lot after import.

I even took two photos at the exact same position with the same exposure, yet when they are imported to lightroom, they no longer have the same exposure. (Ignore the bad cropping)

Both Images taken with ISO 400 f/3,6 and 1/4000sec

I don't know if this applies to your Fuji camera, but it was relatively easy to find on the internet https://www.jmpeltier.com/fujifilm-dynamic-range-settings/

For the rig you posted sys info on

 

 

 

Lightroom Classic version: 8.4 

 

 

 

Why have you not updated to v9.2.1?

 

Nothing else in sys info sticks out.

 

If you update to v9.2.1, be aware of:
