    Lightroom 5.6 / CR 8.6 not recognizing my Canon 16-35mm f4 IS USM lens

    tudor@apmadoc.net Level 1

      I have Lightroom 5.6, Camera Raw 8.6.


      I'm using a Canon 5D Mark 3.   I had a Canon EF 16-35 f2.8 USM for years.  Under Lens Corrections / Profile I would use the Auto Setup and LR would detect the lens automatically.  


      I switched to the EF 16-35 f4 IS USM recently, even with LR 5.6 and Camera Raw 8.6 the Auto Setup doesn't recognize the new lens.    I manually select Canon, then within the model drop down list - the EF 16-35 f4 IS USM does indeed show up.


      I checked the EXIF data - it's listed as "EF16-35 f/4L IS USM" (notice the lack of space between the EF and 16.   However the profile is listed as "Canon 16-35 mm f/4 IS USM" (notice the space between 16-35 and mm).   Looking at the drop down list, this appears to be the ONLY lens listed with a space between the focal length and mm.


      Not sure what the source of the mismatch is here.   I'm trying to figure out how to find the Lens ID in the EXIF info.


      Ideas, suggestions?
