This conversation has been merged. Please reference the main conversation: Lightroom/Camera Raw: Incorrect lens name for Sigma 50mm f/1.4 Art

The "Lens Correction" profile in LR Classic for the Sigma 50mm f/1.4 DG HSM is correctly selected. However, in the metadata, the "Lens" value simply states 50mm f/1.4. I contend the metadata should reflect the name of the lens, as happens in the Lens Correction dialog.

Hi Bruce,

I was just about to direct you to a thread that discusses your issue when I saw you had already posted a reply to that thread. I will merge these together to make them easier to search in the future.

FWIW... I did a little Googling around and noticed that this seems to be "a thing" with Sigma lenses. You can fix it if you get a free utility called Exiftool. Just do a quick search for it.
