Just ordered one. Hopefully, I'll get a good copy from BH.

Thanks for posting the lightroom lens correction profile, Fred.

Can the profile be used in photoshop?

I get code when I tried to click on it from a Mac. Is this PC based solution only? Can someone please help? I appreciate it.

Thanks in advance.

the profile is for 5d2, and not 5d3 unfortunately. i dont know how to do this with 5d3 from LR.
I started a thread on this on POTN, images of rokinon. I ended up with two copies of this lens, and both performed very well, but I know of one person, who has repeatedly posted about the terrible copy that he had.
One of the guys the used to post on landscape forum, who recently switched to Nikon, used to post stunning images with this lens.

I haven't tried it yet, but I imagine there must be a way to force it to load. So long as the profile is for FF I don't see why it would matter (unless Adobe's profile are hard-coded to pixels for some odd reason).

is this the UMC version? confused


It does not appear, to me, that this sale is for the latest version even though UMC can be plainly seen in the image. Search the B&H site for "14mm UMC" and you will find the Rokinon version which has different specs from the Bower (angle of view and groups/elements). You will also see that the lenses labeled Rokinon UMC and Samyang UMC have identical specs.

OK, I'll try it tomorrow and hope it works (for 5D3 AND Photoshop).

Interesting, anybody get theirs yet? Ordered it but this would be too bad. Good find though

I can't seem to get it to work. I tried copying it to the two directories the instructions for Adobe Profile Creator say to copy them into. Nothing. I renamed the file Mark III instead of Mark II. Nothing. I renamed all the contents inside of the file from Mark II to Mark III. Nothing. I changed CameraRAW tag from False to True. Nothing. I changed the image size from 5D2 to 5D3 image size. Nothing.

I didn't try copying all or part of the ID key from a 5D3 profile over into though.

(it seems odd that the original file had the CameraRAW tag set to false)

Looking inside the profiles that ship with Adobe it seems to only list Mark II ones so it seems like would just automatically use them for Mark III as well?

It seems like the profile provided in the link above is a profile only for in cam JPG shots?? It says Camera RAW=False inside the file. Maybe that is why it won't work? (simply changing it to True doesn't seem to help)

Maybe you need to reboot to make Adobe rebuild lens database?

OK, I got the profile posted here to work.

I put it in the wrong directory and you do need to rename the RAW flag inside the file to True.

So it needs to go into "Users/main/AppData/Roaming/Adobe/CameraRaw/LensProfiles/1.0/Canon". (at least for Photoshop/ACR users)

Make sure that it doesn't go into the 1.0 directory itself or into a "Samyang" directory as I had been trying. You need to toss it into the Canon directory since that means Canon bodies, not Canon lenses as it turns out.

Once it is there you need to open the file in WordPad and change the entry "<stCamera:CameraRawProfile>False</stCamera:CameraRawProfile>" to "<stCamera:CameraRawProfile>True</stCamera:CameraRawProfile>".

Then it works. It has no vignetting correction.

I'm not sure if there is anything less than ideal about converting a JPG profile into a RAW profile, but it seems to work.

IMO, this is the best Samyang 14mm lens profile I've tried so far. It can be installed directly from Adobe Lens Profile Downloader app.
http://www.adobe.com/support/downloads/detail.jsp?ftpID=5492

Once you installed the application, you will find many profiles there. I posted a screenshot of the profile I use for the Samy 14mm. It corrects distortion and vignetting very effectively.

Thanks for the heads up on the sale, too. I ordered from B&H and will be trying it out on my 6D soon.

Thanks, Fred and all those who showed me how to download. I appreciate it. I ordered through the FM site so hopefully, FM will get brownie points from B&H. :-)

Love this site.
