Why no lens correction profiles ...
« on: June 24, 2012, 06:19:26 PM »

...for Lumix or Olympus lenses? These are hardly obscure, off-market brands!

They are embedded in the raw files by Olympus and Panasonic cameras. LR knows how to read the info so there is no need for separate profiles.

Hi Michael,

thank you very much - this is a most interesting information !

Does this belong to all combination of G-cameras and lenses - so also the older GH-2 ?

Best wishes

So what about Fujifilm Finepix X10?
I'm just a bit scared thinking about the hundreds of snaps I should take to properly generate a lens correction profile…  :-\

Distortion correction is available for any m4/3 lens-camera combination (Olympus and Panasonic), lateral CA is only supported for Panasonic camera+ Panasonic lens.

We also support distortion, lateral CA, and vignette (peripheral illumination) correction for recent Fuji models, including the X10, X-S1, and X-Pro1. 

Generally, Adobe has been actively working with all the vendors to try to support all metadata-based (i.e., parameter-driven) lens corrections.  This is sometimes not possible for third-party or manual lenses, so in those cases we often have design-based external lens profiles made (e.g., for lenses from Carl Zeiss, Hasselblad, Leica, Pentax, Phase One/Schneider, Sigma, Tamron, and Tokina).

Eric, I just double checked on an X10 photo. Under "Lens Correction" panel the one and only Fujifilm camera listed is X100.
Are those other ones planned for a 4.2 update? I'm buying the X10 in a week or two: I'd really love to have the lens correction support on LR :)

Well, all Olympus and Panasonic branded m43 lenses. The 2 Sigma m43 lenses do not contain embedded lens correction data. I'm not certain about the various manual focus m43 mount lenses sold by companies like Voightlander, SLR Magic, Rokinon, etc.

Also note that Panasonic lenses mounted on Panasonic cameras also embed CA correction data in the EXIF. No Olympus lens, and no lens mounted on an Olympus body, provides this information.
