I'm using Lightroom CC, Sony A7r camera, generating Sony Raw files (AWR) and my problem happens with all of my Sony lenses (all of them have lens Profile Corrections, but I have it turned off on import).
I bring the images into Lightroom without lens correction. When I send my bracketed exposures into Merge To HDR with auto align and auto tone turned off, Lightroom automatically applies the lens correction profile. This is not a problem for most of my lenses as I want them corrected EXCEPT for my Sony 16 mm fisheye converter. I don't want lightroom to correct the fisheye distortion. I talked with someone using Nikon RAW files and Lightroom does not correct their fisheye distortion (don't know about other lenes). How can I prevent Lightroom from applying profile correction to my images upon sending them to Merge to HDR? Thanks
