Lightroom 3 Sony Lense Profile support
Dec 13, 2011

I am about to purchase Lightroom 3 and looked into lense profiles that they support. Very poor support for Sony lenses so far.
Sony E 16mm F2.8
Sony 50mm f/1.4
Sony E 18-55mm F3.5-5.6 OSS (For NEX System)
Sony DT 18-200mm f/3.5-6.3
and
TAMRON 18-250mm F/3.5-6.3 DiII A18N for Nikon
TAMRON 18-270mm F/3.5-6.3 DiII VC B003N for Nikon

Question, will the Tamron Nikon profiles work for the Sony 18-250 or Sony mount for the Tamron 18-270?

Also has anyone had luck using the Adobe Lens Profile Creator
http://labs.adobe.com/technologies/lensprofile_creator/ for our Sony lenses?

Thanks,
Tony

There are a lot of good quality user-created lens profiles for Sony.
Get the profile downloader and take a look.

It is fairly easy to make profiles yourself, using the Adobe lens profiler software.

here are a couple of profiles that I made for my A900:

Actually, in addition to the four Sony lenses, Adobe has over 30 Sigma lens profiles for Sony and something like 16 Tamron lens profiles for Sony. The list is here:

Also, as has been suggested, there are a significant number of additional lens profiles that have been "constructed" for Sony's alpha mount that can be accessed through the Adobe Lens Profile Downloader. (I've added about a dozen myself.)
