Lightroom 6.5.1: Tamron 150-600 not recognised in developer module

Lightroom 6.5.1: Nikon D750 with Tamron 150-600/5-6.3, nef file converted to dng upon import, library module recognises and displays correct camera and lens information but developer module is unable to identify lens automatically for correction despite having a respective profile from Adobe, Tamron 70-200/2.8 would work flawlessly, fix would be very much appreciated - Thanks, Stephan

This should now be fixed as of the CC2015.6/6.6 update released today. You can find more details here: http://blogs.adobe.com/lightroomjournal/2016/06/lightroom-cc-2015-6-now-available.html

In the Lens Correction panel, Profile Section, with the Enable Profile Corrections box checked, can you select the lens and camera combination in the Lens Profile Section?

If so, select the Camera, Lens and Profile, then go to the Setup: pulldown and select Save New Lens Profile Defaults. Try another image. Is it automatic now?

Can you upload an original raw file (NEF) taken with the lens that doesn't match the correct profile to www.dropbox.com and post a public download link in a reply, here, so someone can take a look?  The 150-600 profile has been supported for Nikon since LR 5.3 so a couple years ago, and sometimes lens firmware updates cause a lens to become unrecognizable, again.  An example image would be useful to determine this. 

Can you also try importing just an NEF w/o converting to DNG and see if the lens profile works, that way we know if it is something with the lens or the DNG Conversion that is causing an issue.

Tamron lenses generally never automatically matched up with external lens profiles for one main reason. The profiles do not contain lens IDs by design, and by request of Tamron since they often use the same ID as a native lens (Nikon in this case). I found a way to work around that which required some internal code changes in ACR/LR, so this will be resolved in a future release. The one exception is Tamron lenses on Sony bodies. There are no reasonable ways to differentiate between Tamron and native lenses on Sony cameras (at least as far as I know).

Stephan, please (if possible) upload a sample image (NEF) as Steve suggests and I will confirm the fix works with your images.

Regards,

- Chris

In my previous post I say what to do.  Upload to www.dropbox.com (create an account if need be) and post a public share link to it, here.

Hi Steve,

So sorry. I rushed and overlooked it. Please find the links attached. I used OneDrive, hope that doesn't matter, I don't have a dropbox account.

Appologies and best regards
Stephan

When I check the box to activate lens correction within the developer module I get the error message that it was not possible to identify a suitable profile automatically. If I choose Tamron as manufacturer the correct profile A011N is picked straight away. This indeed confirms what Chris wrote.

Best regards

There are three profiles listed:  VC A011E and VC A011N seem the same and non-VC A011S.  I am not sure why there are so many versions but maybe a specific profile isn't being used because Adobe cannot tell which of the three (or at least of the two VCs) it should be.

If you look at my reply to Rikk's and his, earlier in the thread, you'll see how to have LR default to the right lens instead of saying None by customizing the LR Lens Setup to Default instead of Auto and also saving profile you choose after clicking Tamron as the Default profile for that lens in LR.

Hi Rikk,
Hi Everyone,

thanks for the support. I can confirm that it works like a charm in Lightroom 6.6!

Brilliant.
Best regards
Stephan
