Sigma 24mm F2 Sony Mount Lens Profile Lightroom

23 May 2022 6:30PM
Could someone please assist me in how to get the .lcp file for Sigma 24mm F2 lens for Sony mount. I am using Lightroom 6.13 desktop version that I had bought a while back. The barrel distortion on this lens is prominent and I would like to get a profile to correct it. (Adobe DGN converter has the profile but for the L mount, and the dowloader no longer exist.) Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks.

You can create the profiles yourself using Adobe software. It is fairly straightforward but would take a little time and effort. However, if you paid for the latest version of LR/PS, I suspect the it would be included.

PS. Indeed, I have a licence key but they do not seem to support LR 6 anymore.

Indeed they do not which is why they charge a monthly fee now and have done so for many years. The current versions have many more useful features as well as up-to-date Raw and lens profiles. There are some who think that their software should be maintained forever free but this is clearly not a viable business model as the IT staff who continue to develop and maintain the software have to be paid, so the company need income to do this. To give you an idea of have far behind you are my version of Lightroom is 11.3.1 and Adobe Raw is 14.3.

Totally agree. I would certainly gladly pay for the one or two profiles that I need as as a one off purchase but at this point of time, for a casual amateur, I am not sure if the subscription model makes sense (for me, personally).
