I'm using lightroom CC with a Canon 6D and 100mm 2.8 L macro lens.Your docs https://helpx.adobe.com/x-productkb/m... says that the lens is supported,Canon EF 100mm f/2.8L Macro IS USM Canon 3.2/6.2/12 but lightroom doesn't seem to see the file.How can I fix this?

Do you use raw or JPG?

Full lens profile support exists for raw only. For JPG only very few lenses are supported. The 100mm 2.8 L is only supported for raw.

P.S. I don't know what's the reason behind that. I know that profile support for JPG is problematic because the camera pre-corrects some things by itself. But if that is taken into account, there should be no JPG profiles at all...

Well, the image is not in raw format but PSD. It's a 16 bit image though so was raw.
I checked and see that for CR2, ( Raw images I do get the calibration info),
I was not aware that editing in photoshop would prevent me from using the calibrations. Interesting...
Is this expected?

Most profiles are only for raw, not JPG, because JPGs can be corrected in camera or in software and LR has no way of knowing whether this has occurred or not.

In PS you can apply a raw profile to your non-raw file in the Lens Corrections filter but not in LR.

I would expect the reason that you are not offered lens profiles in LR for a PSD file is down to the fact that it should have been applied at the point that the image was converted from RAW to an RGB format. Why would you not apply the lens correction to the RAW file, but wait to do it later on the ,PSD?

I have the same problem. I use a Nikon D7000 with DX18 - 135/3.5-5.6 and I can't find it in lens profile. Any ideas?

Are you looking at raw files or the JPEGs?

The picture on which I work on, is RAW file.
