LR cc is only giving me the DT 18-200mm setting and nothing else. I shoot more with the 16-50mm lens.

thank you,

Are you shooting Raw or JPEG? Some profiles are only available for Raw.

Yes, Rick. I saw it on the supported listing earlier.

The probable cause is that you overwrote your default for the Lens Correction panel's behavior.

Does the lens show as an option in the pulldown?

If so, select a photo shot with that lens, select your lens profile in the pulldown, then in the Setup: pulldown, select "Save new lens profile defaults"

If not, then you may have a misplaced profile issue.

While I'm asking how, I also use the 55-210mm Sony E which is also on the supported listing.

Only the one choice shows. Neither of my lens are listed. Is the misplaced profile issue something that is fixable?

On my Lr 6.0.1 installation, once I selected "Sony E" as the Make, in the Model popup, I saw both "Sony E PZ 16-50mm F3.5-5.6 OSS" and "Sony E 55-210mm F4.5-6.3 OSS" listed. Does the two match yours?

It just come up Sony under make. I don't see a way to add the E. It sounds like it should help me if I could do that.

Hi Ed,

As Rikk initially mentioned, it sounds like you are attempting to apply a lens profile to a JPEG given that the 18-200mm contains both RAW and JPEG lens correction profiles. The rest of the Sony lens lineup is supported for RAW (.ARW extension) only. The profiles are installed in the application package, so reinstalling Lightroom might resolve your issue, but that probably isn't why you are unable to see the other lenses in the list.

You may wish to reset your lens profile defaults. On the Lens Corrections panel, try this:

1. Profile tab: Enable Profile Corrections
2. Setup: Select "Reset Lens Profile Defaults"

Hope that helps.

Hi Chris,

Let me look into that. Looks like that helped. Everything now shows. Many thanks to you both. I appreciate your help. Long time shooter, newer LR user. Still get confused...
