Sony FE 12-24/4 G Lightroom Lens Profile FIX!
Here are instructions for downloading and replacing the current Sony FE 12-24/4 G Lightroom lens profile.
IMO, the current Adobe profile over-corrects for vignetting and the below version in an attempt to fix that.

Download the edited profile here:

http://www.fredmiranda.com/Buzz/SONY-12-24-edited.zip

Unzip it.

Go to:
____________

Applications > Adobe Lightroom > Adobe Lightroom

Right-click and select “Show Package Contents”

Then go to:

Contents > Resources > LensProfiles > 1.0 > Sony

Find the profile:

SONY (Sony FE 12-24mm F4 G) - RAW.lcp
____________

Important: Make a backup of your current profile before replacing it!!

Replace it with the version downloaded above.

PS: If Lightroom is open, close it. Re-open it for the changes to take effect.
This works on my Mac with the latest version of Lightroom. I have not tested it with other LR versions or on a PC. Play with profiles at your own risk. Always make a backup of the file being replaced.

------------------

The Sony 12-24/4G is now in stock.

Thanks Fred. I applied it on Windows based ACR profile and it works.
The file in my computer (Windows 10) to modify is at c:\ProgramData\Adobe\CameraRaw\LensProfiles\1.0\Sony

Great! So it works for PC and Mac.
This edited lens profile gives similar vignetting correction compared to Lightroom profiles for the FE 16-35/4, Loxia 21 and others. I really think somehow Adobe goofed this one.

Oops, got too fast and overwrote the profile before making a copy ARGH!!! Could someone point me to a copy of the original so I have it just in case?

Thanks!

Give me your email by PM and I will send it to you.
But why would you want to revert to the original profile?

scholtz, if Adobe ever changes this profile, it will overwrite the new version we're getting from Fred. I wouldn't fret not having the original broken version.

Hmm... after thinking about this some more, you guys make a good argument. Guess my old habits of always backing up prompted the request but it really isn't necessary. Thanks! Appreciate the offer Fred, but as you pointed out, I'm not going to use it so why keep it around.

Awesome! would love a similar profile fix for the Batis 85 (the current one overcorrects vignetting as well).

mogul,
This only applies to the Adobe profile (Lightroom and ACR). I'm not even sure if C1 or DXO already have profiles for this lens.

If you don't want to edit the profile, you know that when you go into the profile section of lightroom there is a slider for vignetting: this actually modifies the profile (centre is no mod) and so losslessly (relative to editing the default amount of correction) can either increase or decrease the amount of vignetting. It's quite a separate slider from the post-crop vignetting slider that adds or removes vignetting from the image after cropping. It's a second's job. And in fact, when using a lens that vignettes a bit dealing in the exact amount of correction that suits the image is not a bad idea anyway.

Just wanted to say a quick thank you to Fred for this.

Finally got a chance to shoot with the lens and this profile is much better!
