My Sony A6000 is set to save RAW+JPG images. When I import the RAW files to LR, I can turn on the camera profile and LR recognizes my camera and lens. However, when I import JPG files, LR cannot recognize the lens used in the photos. I am using the Zeiss 16-70 OSS lens and this is recognized immediately for the RAW files. However, when I turn on the Camera Profile for the JPG files, LR forces me to select a manufacturer and when I select "Sony", the wrong lens is selected. There is no way to correct this.
The Camera and Lens are identified correctly in the EXIF metadata.
I think this is a bug. Has anyone encountered this issue?
Most lens profiles are only for raw files, not jpgs. This is normal. You can hack a copy of the existing lens profile file to change the raw=true to raw=false and put it in your users lens profile area and then LR will that copy for jpgs.
