Exported DNG files too bright or too dark (from Panasonic rw2 raw files, Lumix S5II)

Raw photos exported to DNG format are either way too bright or too dark

1.) Import Panasonic .rw2 file from Lumix S5MII into Topaz Photo AI → exposure matches original image
2.) Export (save) into dng format → exposure too bright or too dark (depending on image)
Side note: using “adjust lightning” function has no impact on the displayed photo in Photo AI or on the exported DNG file. It is always too bright or too dark.
