Wondering if anyone has any experience with the auto lens correction and how to install extra profiles? I found one online but I can't get it to recognize in LR3 for the life of me... the camera/lens in question is a canon 1.6x and tokina 11-16 2.8

not sure on installing profiles, I use LR3 and the lens profiles but it's automagic in terms of having them?

Ben, does yours have a 24L profile? Mine doesn't. It's got all my other lenses though.

I don't see that from the drop down if I manually select Canon and lenses. Maybe I'm not doing something right.

it seems half the time i try to use the correction profile i end up going back to the distorted original. either cause it makes people look skinnier or i like the effect/vignette that was there. but i still try it out alot to see what it does

^ Dan, when you apply the profile, you can zero out any of the corrections. So for landscapes I hit the button and usually keep the CA, distortion AND vignette correction, but for portraits I usually keep the vignette as it was shot (strong/obvious). Distortion varies shot to shot but generally I let it fix it unless it's cropping something I want to keep.

i know, i find LR3's CA fixing sucks, DPP is great though, and i play with the sliders everytime. it just that i find im at the original as shot or very close when i get done.

I'll admit to never looking at shots at 100% to check how good LR is with CA. ;)

that is the way i always do it. zoom to 100% locate worst CA, attempt adjustments, get frustrated, give up.

isn't LR3's adjustment better than nothing though? Because that's my other option... :lol:

Sorry, was the OP question addressed and I missed it? I've only got the one lens (siggy 30 1.4) and it's not showing up.

i think the overall is this:

LR3 has lens profiles for the following makes:
apple
canon
nikon
pentax
samsung
schiender
sigma
sony
tamron
ziess

at least that is what i can get to come up using shots from my canon stuff and a friends sony files. it does not have all the lenses that these people make as i could not find one for the 24-70 ziess made for sony that was used in the shots i tried to use it on.
