Adobe Lens Profiles

I photograph almost exclusively with a raw workflow and edit in Lightroom. I just can’t get used to Canon’s clunky Digital Photo Professional even for mundane tasks.

The downside of all this is that when Canon releases new lenses it may take a few months for Adobe to add new lens correction data, particularly for the less popular EF-M lenses.

Thus, I have gone through the rather arduous process of creating a few custom lens profiles using Adobe Lens Profile Creator. When I am completely satisfied with a profile I will share it with Adobe so it can be downloaded via the Lens Profile Downloader, but I will also post interim and final profiles here.

Custom Lens Profiles are supported in Adobe Camera Raw and Adobe Lightroom.

To install a custom lens profile, download the appropriate .ZIP file, decompress, and copy the .LCP file to either of the following locations.
