Hi Nicolas,

The profile for this lens was added in ACR 8.7/Lightroom 5.7. 

Which version of either product are you using?

Regards,

In LR 6.14 I can only find a profile for the 18-200 lens. Was it removed??

EDIT: I found, that the 18-300 profile is only availible when editing raw-files, whereas there is a much smaller list of availible lens profiles when editing jpg-files. 

Is it possible to check the details of the preset and rebuild/copy it, to use it with compressed files?

See https://feedback.photoshop.com/photoshop_family/topics/da_18_55mm_wr_lens_detection_problem_jpg_only. Works for many but not guaranteed to give good results.

Worked like a charm! Results seem to be nearly identical to the lens correction with the raw (.nef in my case) files. 

Thank you very much!

Hi Chris,

Thanks for your feedback and support.

I just (yesterday) upgraded LR to the new 6.4 version installed on W10 system.

In fact I bought this lens last week and I had a look in the lens list on the Adobe site but it was for old LR version.

Thanks again for your quick support.

Have a nice weekend
Nicolas
