Strange behaviour with handling of photos in Lightroom mobile

    hi all,
    Has anyone experienced this somewhat strange issue with photos in lightroom mobile

    1. I take photos on my camera (Sony a7r2)
    2. I Transfer photos directly to iPad Pro over wifi in full/original resolution.
    3. I Import photos into Lightroom.
    From here I noticed each time I want to work on a photo, the cloud icon spins/flashes and it says loading original. Weird since the original was transfer to camera.

    Then, even once the photo "original" has been loaded, the visible photo is at a lower resolution than the original.

    Only until I make a 3 fingered press to toggle between the edited photo and the original does it actually seem to give me access to the higher res version of the photo, which apart from being sharper, also allows me to zoom in much further.

    My question is what's happening? Why if I imported the photos in high res does lightroom keep on downloading a different high res version.

    Why once the original version is downloaded does the image appear to be lower resolution only until I toggle between original and edited photo?

    You help and input is much appreciated.

    Paddy C.
