Sony FE 28-70mm F3.5-5.6 OSS lens profile is missing in LR 5.3 RC

the new Sony FE 28-70 full frame lens for e-mount (kit lens with the Sony A7) does not show up in the lens correction menu in LR 5.3 RC although support for this lens is claimed in the release notes.

The lens profile seems to be on the system as I found it in the Lightroom package (on a Mac). Probably it does not work because this lens is missing in the index.dat file?

Anyway, is there a workaround for this or do I have to wait for the official release of LR 5.3 to get it fixed? Any help is greatly appreciated ...

Kind regards,

I'm experiencing the same problem. Running Lightroom RC 5.3 on OS X Mavericks. I cannot select the Sony FE 28-70mm F3.5-5.6 OSS lens profile in Lightroom.

What I did to make this work was to grab the lcp file from the package and move it (or copy it) to the user override directory as below (change USERNAME to suit):


Restart Lightroom, and viola! The new profile appears in the list.
