Re: Importing new set of photos. Lightroom says some are duplicates. They are not.

Are you resetting your file names each time or occasionally?  In other words, starting a sequence of numbers over again?

I'm pretty sure Lightroom identifies by number and if you are resetting the numbers in your camera then down the road a new photograph is going to be assigned a file number that you've used before and the system will see it as a duplicate.  I've had problems with that using two cameras by the same manufacturer using default nomenclature.
