I just rented from LensRental.com a Tamron 150-600mm f/5-6.3 SP Di VC USD G2 and need a lens profile in it for Lightroom CC please.  Or if the profile is in there via manual selection as a Canon "TAMRON SP 150-600mm F/5-6.3 Di VC USD G2 A022E" we can get this automatic for the Nikon please. Thanks!

That Nikon lens profile is available in LR 6.8 and higher for this Tamron lens. If its not showing automatically select a NEF file shot with that lens. Next go to Lens Corrections panel> Profile,  select Make 'Nikon,' and then in the Profile drop-down select that lens. Next click on the Setup drop-down menu and select 'Save New Lens Profile Defaults.'

Todd, you'd need to select Make "Tamron", not "Nikon" for that (or any) Tamron lens.

Sure I can do that to some extent.  But I'm a little confused if it's A011N or A022N and then these A022N x1 and A022N x2 .  Interesting.

Well, if it's definitely the G2 lens that you've rented, you'd need either the G2 A022E or G2 A022N, and I assume there'll be some means of identifying which is the correct number for that lens. The Tamron web-site just lists A022 as the Item Number (maybe the E or N denotes world region, or something like that).

Tamron uses E, N, and S designation to indicate the camera "brand," with 'E' being Canon, 'N' Nikon, and 'S' Sigma. Here are the available lens profiles. The 'x1.4' and 'x2.0 designations are when using the lens paired with a 1.4x or 2.0x tele-extender.

Thanks very much Todd, going manual like that will work for now!

If you're not using the lens with a tele-extender you can use 'Save New Lens Profile Defaults' to automatically assign the correct lens profile. If using a tele-extender I'm not sure LR will detect it automatically on the non-OEM Tamron lens and assign the proper x1.4 or 2.0x lens profile. You'll have to test it!
