We have begun the process of profiling lenses for the Sony Alpha system. For example, in Camera Raw 8.3 / Lightroom 5.3 we provided new lens profiles for three major zoom lenses: Sony 16-35mm F2.8 ZA SSM Sony 24-70mm F2.8 ZA SSM Sony 70-200mm F2.8 G SSM II You can expect more in the future.

Hello! I suggest that you contact as well Sony as help from the lens manufacturer is useful to have all lenses/cameras combinations.

CameraRaw/ Lightroom Lens Profiles
Could you possibly add some more Sony/Minolta profiles, if that's technically reasonable?
Sony Alpha DT 18-70/3.5-5.6 (SAL1870)
Sony Alpha DT 30/2.8 Macro SAM (Order Code SAL30M28)
Minolta AF 50/1.7 (year 1990, Order Code 2613-100)
Thanks and best regards

Does anyone know if a camera calibration profile exists for the Sony SLT A-55V for use with Lightroom 3? If not, is it feasible for a new user of Lightroom (i.e., me) to create one and, if so, how would I go about doing so? Much thanks.

Just upgraded from PSE8 to Lightroom 3 and hugely impressed with Lightroom's versatility. I'd be even more impressed if there is support for the lens I use most on my Sony SLT-A55.

Thanks for the requests. I combined all the requests for Sony/Minolta in one topic to gather up all the votes.

In the nearterm, If you weren't aware already, you can create your own lens profiles with the Adobe Lens Profile Creator or you can download user-contributed profile for that lenses through the Adobe Lens Profile Downloader.

If you want to create your own Camera Profiles using the DNG Profile Editor.

I have a Sony A77 and am trying out Lightroom 4. problem is I am disgusted with the lack of support for Sony alpha lenses. Just 2 profiles for Sony alpha lenses. I have the 16-50(as do probably most a77 owners) and the excellent 70300G. these are 2 of the best lenses available for any camera IMHO. but as adobe appear not to be bothered with Sony alpha users I will probably not be bothered with adobe at the end of the trial.

Sony currently make 4 E-mount and 38 Alpha mount lenses. you do 2 of each. ie 5% of Sony alpha and over 50% of ever other mount. and as the 50% of e-mount shows this is nothing do with not having the time to catch up. and of course you have 0 Minolta.

I also see reference to "camera calibration profile " where do I find these in Lightroom 4 (I bet there is not one for Sony A77, probably not for any Sony). Looks like Adobe are traditionalist snobs.

We woud love to provide a complete set of Sony profiles. However, we are unlikely to be able to do so unless we can work with Sony to build profiles from the lens design data. (We have done this with other vendors, with good results.) Hopefully it is just a matter of time. In the meantime, it would be productive for you to let Sony know directly that this is important to you. It always helps when vendors hear this type of constructive feedback directly from their customers. Thanks.

I also just purchased the Sony A77 and am new to Lightroom 4...am having huge difficulties trying to find the profile for the 16-50 lens (which is awesome by the way) to use the lens correction tool. I am loving Lightroom 4 but would love some help on getting this problem corrected. 🙂

Any progress on this yet? Because buying software and THEN finding this problem out really sucks. I also like how the default kit lens is an E mount and not the alpha...(sarcasm)

When will you add more Sony Alpha lens correction profiles. You currently only support only one alpha mount lens.

We are currently not actively building profiles for the Sony SLR (Alpha-mount) lenses. We do currently have a nearly-complete set of profiles for the NEX (E-mount) system. For the A-mount, my suggestion for now is either to use the Adobe Lens Profile Creator to build your own lens profile, or check using the Adobe Lens Profile Downloader if other users have already built lens profiles for the particular lenses that you're interested in.

Why did you stop building profiles for the Alpha series? Telling us to do it ourselves is not good customer service. Very disappointed in Adobe!!!

Michael, did you try the Lens Profile Downloader? There are 161 sony lenses profiles available. (not sure what your particular lenses are)



Unfortunately, we don't have access to every lens/body available which is why we've provided tools for customers who do have access to create profiles, and the downloader for people to share profiles with other customers.

Well I guess since the last post was 2 months ago the OP figured out that there is a profile for the 16-50mm f2.8 SSSM using the A77.

Of course, one could use the lens profile creator with his/her camera and lenses. I'm currently using the A99 and no one as profiled lenses with that camera yet, so I may just have to do it mayself.

Of course one could also use DXO Optics Pro!

An encouraging sign is that Adobe just added support for the Sony DT 16-50mm F2.8 SSM lens in the Camera Raw 8.4 Release Candidate.

I downloaded the Adobe Lens Profile Downloader, found the two Profiles I was looking for and tried to download two lens Profiles. Every time I clicked on Download after selecting the Profile, nothing seemed to happen! Nothing popped up or let me know what was going on. So I tried logging on using the button on the lower right of the window but that didn't work either! It keeps saying "Could not log into this account."

I took the time to go to photoshop.com and I was able to log in successfully and I was also able to log in at this site too! (It would be nice if something would pop up and tell you that you need to log first if you click the Submit button before doing so.) What is going on? It would be nice if Adobe would fix this problem soon.

Another strange thing. After logging in and clicking the Submit button, I see that it says near the top left of this page near a red circle with an explanation mark saying, "You must log in to view that page." What page is "that" page? I am logged in at this page.
