I'm about to implement this same setup. I think you're saying th moral of the story is that I should NOT rename the RAW files upon upload to the PC either. I've usually done a rename to date_seq#.cr2. If I do that it wold be as bad as letting the iPad rename as far as syncing goes.

It might work Jon, but I would experiment first on a few files before trying it on an important set.

There are several file-matching options in the Lightroom plugin. One of them allows the plugin to try to match files based on the sequence numbers, using a pattern "#1234#.#". (The # are actually asterisks, but depreview keeps converting them into bold type, stupid...) I think that this option, combined with the date/time match option, should let the LR plugin find the matching raw files.

It is possible though that it could slow down the syncing process, if the wildcard search makes it take longer to locate matching files. (Before I got the filename problem sorted out I tried doing a match on only date/time and it took foreverrrrr..., barely 3 files per minute.)
