I am delighted to see that you have added lens profiles for Pentax 645 FA lenses - which is very useful to users of the digital Pentax 645D. However, I (in common with many users of this camera) also use older manual lenses - including the Pentax 645 A lenses and the Pentax 67 lenses (using a Pentax adaptor). This is very common for users of this body. I realise that use of these manual lenses would not appear in the file meta data and could not report aperture or distance info. - so any profile would require manual input of the details. However, I would consider that a great solution that would vastly improve my experience of using ACR with this camera's files. For reference, the lenses I use with this body are Pentax 645 A 35mm, and the following Pentax 67 lenses: 55mm f4, 75mm f2.8AL, 90mm f2.8, 105mm f2.4, 135mm f4 macro, 150mm f2.8, 165mm f2.8, 200mm f4 and 300mm f4 EDIF. From discussions I have had with other 645D users, these lenses all seem to be quite widely used with this body.

Thanks for the request.

If you weren't aware already, you can create your own lens profiles with the Adobe Lens Profile Creator or you can download user-contributed profile for that lenses through the Adobe Lens Profile Downloader.

Thanks Jeffrey. I am indeed aware of that - hoping that these profiles might at some point be provided! However, happy to create my own ones in time and share them if need be :-)
