50mm Sigma ART lens misidentification

Starting in CC 2015.2, and continuing in the 2015.3 release, LR 100% consistently misidentifies my Sigma 50mm 1.4 ART lens as a Zeiss Milvus 50mm 1.4 ZE. Not a big deal (and very flattering), but it's an extra step I have to take regularly now to correct it.

If it could be fixed in the next release, I'm such a bunch of us with this wonderful lens would appreciate it. Thanks!

Hello Adam,

This is caused by an unfortunate lens ID collision that we didn't anticipate. Apologies for that. The good news is that a fix will be available in the next release of ACR/LR in early 2016. In the meantime you can work around this by setting a new Lens Profile Default with SIGMA as the lens Make on one of your images made with the 50mm ART lens. Once the fix is available you can reset lens profile defaults to clear the custom setting.

Hope that helps,

- Chris
