Lightroom: Problem with magenta-cast

For some time now I am having problems with a magenta-cast appearing on basically all my RAW-files which I import from either my Lumix G9 or (now) also with my new Fujifilm X-H1. As I have found during my research on the Internet, other people are facing the same problem. The magenta-cast is quite strong at times and does NOT appear with JPG-files. When opening the RAWs in the respective dedicated software for uix or the Fuji, the cast also disappeared. Meanwhie, I have found a way to live with the problem, by marking all relevant images and then change the value for toning to ZERO and then synchronize so that all files are on neutral zero. I would appreciate any suggestion what is wrong or how I could solve that problem once and for all. Thanks and cheers

Hi Christian, Please tell us if you have faced this with any other raw files (like arw, cr2, etc) and also on which version of LR, along with the OS and your machine config. I tried to reproduce this issue but it worked fine for me on XH1 Raf files, on 8.2.1 and a Windows 10 machine.

Hi, Pavan, I am on CC and version is 8.2.1 on windows 10. Problem seems to occur also with RW2 (Lumix), RAF (Fuji), and I believe it has also happened before on an earlier version of LR Classic. Members of the German G9-forum have also noticed the problem. This time, with about 3000 pictures to be edited, I circumvented the problem by marking all the files and setting WB  to 0 (zero)

I want to add: the JPGs though seem to be okay, and "toning" at the time of import is on Zero (0). also, the JPG-images look pretty clean. Magenta is particularly annoying the covering an area which is predominantly green.....

Could you share a few raw files with me? I did try on G9 as well on Win 10 and 8.2.1, but I didn't see any such issues. Is there any preset that you're applying on import?

Thanks for looking into this problem. Naturally, I can mail you files. I suppose you would want original files and not those already imported into LR Classic CC. Where should I mail them to

Yes, I did receive them and thanks for sharing. However, I could not see colour cast at all, except on one image (cormorant in flight), where there was slight cast in the upper portion. Could you attach a few screenshots on how it looks before and after correction?
