Lightroom 4.1: Some photos not importing.

My copy of Lightroom 4.1 RC is not able to import certain 16 bit TIFFs that were created from CR2 files using Canon DPP 3.11.26. When I save them from DPP as 8 bit TIFFs with EXIF, they import fine. Not every file is affected though -- only 222 out of 954 were. All of the CR2s are from a Canon 5DMkIII. I'd be happy to provide example files, CR2 or TIFF.

Thank you.

Update: some of the 8-bit files are not importing. All of the files that Lightroom cannot import open up into Photoshop CS3, though, so the issue does not appear to be a bad TIFF format.

Can you post the affected files on Dropbox or another file sending service so the LR team can investigate?

I put four files at: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/7jbqp5bssi...

(1) original CR2
(2) 8 bit TIFF
(3) 16 bit TIFF (not sure this uploaded correctly, though)
(4) 2 page print screen of what I see in LR

The TIFFs were created from the CR2 using Canon DPP 3.11.26.

I'm running Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 (64 bit) on a Dell Studio XPS 435T with 8 GB RAM. CPU is Intel Core i7 920 @ 2.67 GHz

Please let me know if you need anything else from me.

Thank you.
