Is there a plan to add an ACR lens profile for the Canon 17mm f/4 TS-E?

The Canon PowerShot G3X, G5X, G7X, and G9X cameras have a lens profile embedded in the CR2 raw file that is used by LR and ACR for automatic correction of Distortion, Vignetting, and Chromatic Aberrations.  At the bottom of the Lens Corrections panel you will see an' i' icon with the words 'Built-In Lens Profile.' It does a very good job!

Todd: There's no "i" there, there's an exclamation point that says "Unable to locate a matching profile automatically" (if I select Auto or Default under "Setup"). If I select a (wrong) profile, there's no way to unselect it (so that comes up if I select Custom). How do I get to the "i", or unselect my wrong choice?

That is exactly the same what I see when I uncheck "Enable Profile Correction". Nothing happens with the foto if I check or uncheck it, only the explanation mark disappaers when it is checked.

You need to uncheck 'Enable Profile Correction' to see the' i' icon with the words 'Built-In Lens Profile.' You will NOT see any difference in the image if no lens profile was selected. because it is applied automatically. There is no way to turn it OFF and see what the image looks like without the lens profile. Below is a G3X CR2 file opened in RawDigger, which does not apply any profile corrections. I think you will agree that the LR "built-in" profile is doing a good job.

Yes, I understand, but nevertheless, there is no ' i' icon with the words 'Built-In Lens Profile.'  , please see the screenshot.(Lightroom CC, version 2015.9, Camera Raw 9.9)

I'm with Poppy! Unchecking "Enable Profile Correction" doesn't show the "i" and even if I "Reset" the photo, then it erases the wrong lens choice I made (G1X), but then there's only the Exclamation point with "Unable to locate a matching profile automatically" showing. Yes, I have the 2015.9 Release, on an iMac (10.12.3).

In the above screenshot it's showing a DNG file. Is the original file used to create that DNG a raw CR2 file or JPEG file? Canon G3X JPEG files have the lens profile applied in-camera and will NOT show the' i' icon with the words 'Built-I G3Xn Lens Profile' even if you've Exported it to DNG file format. If the original file is a raw CR2 file please upload it to Dropbox or other file sharing site and I'll take a look a at it.

The original file is an RW2 (I am from the panasonic world) an it is the same with the Lens Correction panel. I copy the links to the original file and the screenshot here:

With your RW2 file open in my LR CC 2015.9 on Windows 7 the 'i' icon and 'Built-in Lens Profile applied' is showing (see below). It is also applying lens corrections when compared to the RawDigger export TIFF. Please reset your LR Preferences file as outlined at the below link and see if that fixes the issue:

Dear Todd, many thanks! I just reset the preferences and it works - also with DNGs.
So finally there was an answer to a problem which started 3 years ago.....
(And now I will start to set my presets again.)  Good evening!

Todd & Poppy, YES! I also reset the preferences (after seeing Poppy's success) and it worked! "Built-in Lens Profile applied" is now there in there in Lens Corrections for my Canon G3X shots, just like you said Todd. Thanks again, and thanks Victoria for the instructions!

Carlos and Poppy, good to hear resetting the Preferences file fixed the issue! When you upgrade LR (i.e. LR 3>4>5>6) the old Preferences file is used to carry-over all of your LR settings and then "modified" to support new functions in the upgrade version. During this process the Preferences file can become corrupted and cause "strange behavior" such as what you experienced. It has only happened to me once after upgrading from LR 4 to 5.

As user of the Panasonic Lumix G - Sytem camera, I would be very interested in having integrated the respective lens profiles for the panasonic lenses (esp. f2.8/12-35; f2.8/35-100; f4.0-5.6/100-300; f1.7/20).

Lens corrections are integrated in the Micro-ForThird system and " automatically" applied in LR and ACR. At the bottom of the Lens Correction panel > Profile with 'Enable Profile Correction'  unchecked an 'i' icon with the words 'Built-In Lens Profile' should appear.

Phantom 4 Pro DNG images have built-in lens corrections. You can confirm this via the info message on the lower portion of the Lens Corrections panel when "Enable Profile Corrections" is unchecked.

When can we expect profiles for Hasselblad ́s X1D lenses?
I ́d be sad if I was forced to use Phocus.

Whilst RAW images from these camera is supported within Lightoom - why can't jpeg's be handled in a similar manner?  As jpeg images contain exif information and are essentially very compressed versions of RAW images surely the same lense corrections can be applied?  Camera RAW from version 7.1 has supported my Samsung NX cameras and various lenses within Lightroom 5.6 onwards - but there is no way of applying it to jpegs.  Whilst Apple, Canon, Nikon etc appear to be able to apply corrections to their jpegs - why can't Samsung and a multitude of other manufactures not?

We generally only build profiles for raw files for the reasons you point out (i.e. most cameras allow in-camera corrections to JPEGs). For the Samsungs, you have the option of copying the existing lens profile (.LCP file) to the user profile folder and changing the following property from True to False.

stCamera:CameraRawProfile="True"

That will enable it for JPEGs. Keep in mind that the correction may not be 100% correct since it was generated from a scene-referred raw file and not an output-referred JPEG.

Opteka = Samyang, so you already have those profiles.

First Opteka doesn't appear in the list of the brand, then I think Adobe will put rather the brand than a sub-brand !

There is no lens profiles for a Samyang 85mm F1.8 lens, only F1.4. It's not likely Adobe will produce a lens profile for this older manual focus lens.

You can create a lens profile using the Adobe Lens Profile Creator: https://helpx.adobe.com/x-productkb/multi/lens-profile-support.html#Create_your_own_lens_profiles

You can also simply try one of the available Canon or Nikon 85mm F1.8 lens profiles, which may be similar to the Opteka 85mm F1.8 lens performance.
