Are you shooting in Raw or JPG? If Raw, any chance you could upload a sample Raw file so we can take a look?

 

Has this started happening recently or ever since you got your G90?

Are you talking about Lightroom Classic or Lightroom?

I have the same issue with Sony alpha 7 SIII. Lightroom CC underexposes all the pictures when I import them (of 2 stops, at least)...

>>>Lightroom CC

 

Are you referring to Lightroom (Cloud based) or Lightroom Classic (local catalog based)?

It's quite normal that Lightroom represents the data slightly darker than what you see in the camera. That doesn't mean anything's "wrong" - remember that it's exactly the same sensor data, not one pixel has been differently exposed.

 

The issue is rather that the camera manufacturers stretch the data as far as they will go. A "brighter" image is always a selling argument when the customer is in the store.

 

Lightroom, on the other hand, is conservative. It doesn't try to sell anything, it just wants to represent the full sensor data.

 

I've seen this with every camera I have ever used with Lightoom, three or four Nikons and two Sony alphas. When you get to know the camera, you get a feel for how much exposure it's safe to give vs. the camera LCD.
