I suppose the 35mm f2.8 is only available for raw photos. LR is not using the same profiles for raw and non-raw photos.
I did not check because I not at my computer with LR, but can not just select the correct profile manually?
No i cannot select the lens manually because it isn't there. Also i tried that method of moving the lens profile whilst removing the raw tag from it ages ago and it still didn't show up.
What i did: found the 35mm f2.8 lens profile in applications, show package contents - resources - lensprofiles - then duplicated the 35mm f2.8 profile and removed RAW from the name (it says edit the RAW flag on the other post but i don't know what that means or how to do that)
I then copied that to (my home folder) - library - application support - adobe - cameraraw - lensprofiles and restarted lightroom at it still doesn't show up.
How would i removed the raw flag from the profile?
You need to open the (profile) file with an editor (i.e.notepad if you're on Win) and edit the contents as described by ssprengel.
Ah, yes i remember i did this before changing all of these "stCamera:CameraRawProfile=“True” to false and it still didn't work and I've just done it again and it doesn't work. I even tried adding it into the resources - lens profiles folder and it still doesn't show up.
It seems like there is something locking these files only for RAW that takes more than just changing stCamera:CameraRawProfile=“True” to false.
Unfortunately, I am not at my LR computer for the next ~8 hours, so I can not really test.
Just to make sure: The profile comes up for the RAW from the same camera with the same lens?
If yes, this is the file to copy and edit ( <stCamera:CameraRawProfile>False</stCamera:CameraRawProfile>)
Profiles need to match the Camera/sensor size, Lens and file type.
Hi, not sure if your talking about the same .icp file as me? but essentially like i copied above it's pretty much the same as what you have put.
Here is a excerpt from the file (that as you can see i changed to false) i did this for every single one in the profile as i believe it has different settings depending on aperture/focus distance.

The FE 35 is a Full Frame lens. The DT 18-200 is a crop. Since this is showing up I suspect you are not using a FullFrame camera and thus the FE35 can newer show up.
Sorry for not "seeing" this before
I'm using a full frame sony a7
If so, then the DT 18-200 should not show up. This somehow means that LR not recognizing the correct sensor size/camera type on the externally modified psd.
What lenses do show up on raw taken with the A7? The FE should show up but the DT not.
As I suspected, with the correct camera information in the EXIF/Metadata, the correct lenses show up.
In turn, this means that somehow this information is stripped from the photo when you use the external "tonality pro". When back in LR, it shows you wrong lenses because of this missing information. What metadata is the photo showing in LR after the external work?
You need to check this external work flow.
btw: if you images come back in as psd then this is not a raw format. It does then not show you the lens profiles available fro raw only. You need to have it available for non-raw to get this to work.
Hi that's the weird thing, it does actually show the correct metadata for the lens when it's imported from tonality pro back into lightroom
I'm just guessing: It comes back in cropped, right? I mean the photo (psd after external work) does not contain the original (full) frame data anymore and therefore LR is not able to apply a lens correction because this would lead to false correction/results ... I am just thinking loud.
This would be a question for one of the CameraRaw experts of Adobe. I'd ask him.
