Re: Lightroom 5 & A7r bug, I put those raw files to server to download

I'm sorry if I wasn't answering your original question/concern.  Properly blending the stitched images will make the transitions seamless, but it doesn't address your issues with how LR5 treats settings, compared to earlier LR versions and Capture One.

I have downloaded your RAW files (fix those sensor spots! ), but unless I know how you adjusted the middle image, I can't duplicate your issue.  Could you perhaps upload the .xmp file for the middle image with your adjustments?

As mentioned, Adobe shifted their basic adjustments with LR4 and LR5.  It could be you are trying to get these later versions to do something they no longer will do.  Adobe made these changes -for very good reasons-, and most will agree they are necessary and welcome changes.  Myself included.

When shooting panoramas, I often have a few shot that have extreme light values.  The only way to get shadow/highlight detail, I have to adjust JUST the images that need them, then gradually ramp down those adjustments in adjoining images to blend seamlessly.  I believe this is a necessary step in shooting pano's with extreme shifts in lighting.

e.g. If you adjust a neutral image in the sequence to your liking - say, add 20 to shadow detail, that may make that neutral image very satisfying.  If you apply an identical correction to an image that is in deep shade, it will hardly make an impact.  I'm afraid you will have to do a bit more work to get the entire range to blend into a panorama.
