    Lens Corrections - Where have Pentax Lenses gone in April update?

    geraldm78661191

      The April update seems to have greatly reduced the list of lens makes. My concern is that Pentax has been omitted from the list. Why and can they please be added back otherwise Lightroom's usefulness for me and other Pentax users is also reduced.

          There are currently just over 70 Pentax lens supported by Lightroom. Therefore not sure why you believe the number is greatly reduced. Might it be that the images you're trying to apply the profiles to are JPEG rather than raw? If they are JPEG then that might explain why there appears to have been a reduction in the number of supported lenses.

            Hi, Yes, there were lots of Pentax lenses supported by Lightroom  but not in the April 2018 update for Lightroom Classic CC.

              The lens profiles provided by Adobe are predominantly only compatible with raw files. If the image(s) you're working on are not raw then none of the 'raw only' lens profiles will appear in the lens profile drop down list.

               

              As I indicated in my previous message, there are currently 70 plus Pentax lens supported. I'm pretty confident that this is more than at any time in  the past. So, you seeing fewer than expected would suggest that you're working with non raw files or you've inadvertantly deleted the profiles. I suspect the former!

                Hi,Thank you for your reply. I was editing an HDR image created in LR. After reading your reply I had a look at one of the original images used for the HDR and could then access all the Pentax lenses. Sorry. Mea culpa.

                  Hi, Forget my question. I've realised that I was editing an HDR image created in LR. When I went back to one of the images used to create the HDR I found that I could access all the Pentax lenses. I'd not realised that the Enable Corrections applies only to RAW files.
