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.

We recently added the Sony 70-300 G 4.5-5.6mm and many more to LR5.6/ACR8.6 which is available now.

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

I did contact Sony some time ago but only received a standard reply acknowledging receipt of my email.

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

I also have a Sony A-200 (A200) with the Sony Alpha DT 18-70/3.5-5.6 (SAL1870) and the Minolta AF 50/1.7. I really wish these profiles were supported! Bernd Werner - are you interested in collaborating on something?

We added the DT 18-70 in Camera Raw/Lightroom 8.7. You will need to upgrade your copy of Photoshop or Lightroom or download and install the 8.7.x DNG Converter to get the profile. We do not have a copy of the older Minolta 50mm f1.7 to build a profile from, but you might be able to locate a user-generated profile via the Adobe Lens Profile Downloader.

Regards,

The Minolta Maxxum AF 50mmf 1.7 is like $20 on ebay.

I have an A6000 with both Sony A-Mount adapters (LA-EA2 ad LA-EA4) to use all that great (and inexpensive) Minolta glass. These are the Minolta A Mount lenses I have (made by various companies):

Minolta Maxxum AF 50mm f1.7

Minolta Maxxum AF 28mm f2

Minolta AF Zoom 20-35mm f3.5-4.5

Minolta Maxxum AF 70-210mm f4


Tamron AF 28-105mm f4.5-5.6 (IF) [lens itself says 179D for Minolta AF A-mount]


Sony sal35f18 DT35mm f1.8 SAM

Sony sal1118 11-18mm f4.5-5.6

Hello. You might try applying the profile from the Minolta MD 50mm f/1.7. It's possible that the optical formula is the same (6 elements/5 groups) as the Maxxum and Alpha editions of this classic lens.

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.

Camera calibration? Does this apply to PS & ACR?

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 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.

There is no need to log on to photoshop.com to download the profile. The login part is only needed if you want to rate or comment on a particular profile. Adobe no longer supports this part of the original photoshop.com service. Thus the login error that you saw.

To get back to your original profile download question, You just need to select the row of the profile that you want to download, then hit the Download button. The Location column of the profile would be changed from “Online” to “Installed”. The button text will change to "Delete". Relaunch LR/PS to have the application pick up the downloaded profile. It is simple as that. There is no save file dialog necessary.

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.

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. :)

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.

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.

I am also upset by the continuing lack of Minolta lens profiles. They offer Minolta MC & MD lens profiles, which are not even supported by Sony.

Adobe does not list even a single A mount lens. The Minolta AF Maxxums are A mount (Alpha) and can be used natively on many Sony bodies, or with the Sony LA-EAx adapters.

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.

Thanks for the info. I will definitely be contacting to Sony as I hope others will too.

Adobe no doubt has better channels to Sony than the average consumer does. How about giving us those email addresses and numbers?

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)

Adobe seem truly confused by the Alpha/A acquisition and the resulting chaos of terms. Adobe gives us MC and MD lens profiles instead of the Minolta A mount that the Alphas were originally based on.
