Lightroom was not designed to match the Canon software, which uses proprietary algorithms to show you the enhanced colors you are seeing. Use Lightroom to adjust the colors to your liking. Create a preset so that future photos will have the same adjustments applied at Import. There are many Canon photographers using LR, and they find this method to work fine.

But am I the only or the first one with such a problem ? Shouldn't there be already dozens of presets for various cameras ?

There are, just Google and you will find many. How closely they make a RAW image opened in LR match the same image opened in DPP will vary from camera model to model and from image to image for the same camera.

You are much better off just accepting that Lightroom will give you a different looking image than DPP and that it is a better starting image for post processing than the JPG look alike from DPP.

Here is one link to get you started.
