This will also only be fixed in digiKam-8.0.0 through the changed import 
process. In digiKam-7.x.x the file date is used if the metadata date is not 
available. The metadata is not yet available during the import. For 
digiKam-7.x.x you can try to enable it in the digiKam settings under Camera-> 
Behavior-> Reading metadata (makes the connection slower).
