Lightroom/Camera Raw: Lens profile request: Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II USM +1.4x & Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II USM +2x

Lens profile request for 100-400mm II lens with teleconverters

The 100-400mm mark II lens is supported by Lightroom, and in ACR 9.3 support was added for the mark III teleconverters used on most of the prime telephoto lenses. However, support does not seem to have been added for the 100-400 mark II lens with teleconverters, though it is compatible and performs very well with the 1.4x

Was this simply an oversight? Can we still get a profile for the teleconverter combos? Canon was so proud of the 100-400mm mark II's performance with the teleconverters that they released the corresponding MTF charts, which I gather is unusual for a zoom.

To be clear, this is a request for profiles for:

Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II USM +1.4x
Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II USM +2x

Thanks!

Hi Patrick,

Will be included in a release targeted for sometime early summer (assuming plans don't change). 

Thanks again for the request.
