I would like to submit two lens profiles for inclusion in the ALPD for Four Thirds / micro Four Thirds

I've created two lens profiles with the ALPC and would like to submit them for inclusion in the ALPD, just like I did a few years ago for the super high-grade lenses of the Olympus E-System:

1.) As the first profile of this thread, I used an Olympus OM-D E-M1 as body in combination with the OLYMPUS Four Thirds "Zuiko 14-35 f2.0 SWD":

I would like to complete my lens profile series in ALPD with this lens (In the past, I used an OLYMPUS E-5 as body). Please, be aware that the body E-M1 is working as a "Four Thirds" camera in combination with this lens.

2.) As my second profile, I used the same Olympus OM-D E-M1 as body nut now in combination with the (manual) top and popular micro Four Thirds lens "Voigtlander Nokton 17,5 f0.95":

Please, be aware that the body E-M1 is working as a "micro Four Thirds" camera in combination with this lens. But due to the fact that the lens is manual, no communication is possible between the camera and the lens. To create the profile in ALPC, I used EXIFTOOL and added the aperture values into the EXIF sections of the DNGs after my shootings, separately. Nevertheless, the users can use the lens profile as it is (no EXIFTOOL needed by he community!) neglecting the little dependency on aperture values.

On the other hand, if more precision is requested by some of the users, I would also publish a short practical guide (in another thread) explaining an easy way how to use EXIFTOOL in batch mode and how to add aperture values into pictures of manual lenses by just "drag and drop" and then run a batch-file.

I sent those two lens profiles to Adobe two months ago but did not get any response. This gave me reason to set-up this thread.

Thanks

Is there a reason you're not actually linking the .lcp files in this message, perhaps from Dropbox.com or similar file-hosting website? That way other users who might care can test them, and Adobe doesn't have to initiate a private communication to get them, and rely on internal testing, only, to see if they are reasonable quality.

You could also provide a few raw images taken with these lens combinations so people without this camera and these lenses can test them. I don't mean your input images, I mean images that have straight lines in various areas of the FOV and at various focal lengths, even ones that aren't specifically the ones you entered.

It may be that Adobe is busy getting LR6 and ACR9 (presumably the next versions at some point in the near future, but I don't know) ready and doesn't have time to test things or may not have this camera and lens combination to test with and going to rent the combination isn't a high priority.

Here are two links to the lcp-files, I hope they will work:
