Lens profiles for ACR and Lightroom 3
Adobe Labs released Lens Profile Creator utility that enables creation of custom lens profiles for Photoshop CS5 (ACR 6.1) and Lightroom 3.
This page contains profiles for some Zeiss ZE lenses for Canon EOS 5D II that I created using that tool. The profiles are free to use.
Currently there are profiles for the following lenses:
- Distagon 21mm ZE
- Distagon 28mm ZE
- Makro-Planar 50mm ZE
- Makro-Planar 100mm ZE
Profile for Zeiss Distagon 35/1.4 is now available for download:
