The Import-Window where you can select the Pictures to Import from a mass-storage (CF-Card or Stick) is insufficient in quality.

This means, that you can't zoom to true 100% (Pixel-to-Pixel) and doesn't see the full color.

The Import dialog only views the previews stored in the files. If it's not big enough, you'll need to import the files so that Lightroom can build its own high quality full size previews.
