It would be nice to be able to download original DNGs for en entire album to the iPad instead of doing it one by one for single images. Or even better: select a number of images and than have a button "get originals for the selected images"

You can already do that for an entire album. Tap on the three dots behind the album name. Then tap 'Store Locally'.

That will download only the smart previews not the original DNG.

Go to LR's Settings > Cloud Sync > Only Download Smart Previews and toggle it off to switch to downloading originals Johan's way.

unfortunately this seems to apply to all the albums for which I selected “store locally” (basically all of them in my case) so I would very soon run out of space on the iPad. While if it was possible to decide which albums to download as originals DNG and which one as smart previews it would be possible to manage the space more efficently. Now this choiche is possible only at single picture level
