I would like to apply lens correction automatically on import. i have a develop preset that does this, and i have it set to apply automatically on import. Here's my question: Should it recognize the lens used for each picture and apply the correction for that specific lens? The reason I ask is that LR doesn't seem to be applying the correction for my newest lens, a Tokina 17-35mm. The lens is listed in the list of lenses, so i'm confused as to why it's not being applied automatically.
Attached is how the lens correction panel looks after importing a photo with this lens.
I searched the forum for this topic and found some old ones but none with the recent version of LR.
what am i doing wrong?
I sure would like to know the answer to this also.
I just started shooting with a new lens and I have to manually enter the Make Nikon for it to show up as 200 f2.
Here's what i was told on another forum by Victoria Brampton (she's incredible) and it worked:
"It just needs a helping hand. Lens metadata isn't very well standardized yet.
Select the profile from the pop-ups, then select Save New Lens Profile Defaults from the Setup pop-up and it should be able to select it automatically in future."
This works. Now LR loads the correct lens profile.
Thanks much eschurr
