Adobe adds support for the new E-M10II, A7sII, DxO cameras. Adds many “older” lens profiles.



Adobe released a new Lightroom update. New cameras like the E-M10II, A7sII, DxO are now supported. But probably unexpected is the following part. Adobe added many lens profiles on “older” lenses used by many mirrorless camera owners through their adapters:

– Canon FD 28 mm f/2.8
– Canon FD 50 mm f/1.4
– Canon FD 135 mm f/2.5 S.C.
– Carl Zeiss Distagon T* 45 mm f/2.8 (Contax 645)
– Carl Zeiss Distagon T* 35 mm f/3.5 (Contax 645)
– Asahi Pentax Super-Takumar 55 mm f/1.8 (M42)
– Fujifilm Fujinon 50 mm f/1.4 (M42)
– Fujifilm Fujinon 55 mm f/1.8 (M42)
– Minolta MC Rokkor 58 mm f/1.2
– Minolta MC Rokkor -PF 55 mm f/1.7
– Minolta MC Rokkor -X PG 50 mm f/1.4
– Minolta MC Tele Rokkor -PE 200 mm f/4.5
– Minolta MC W.Rokkor -HG 35 mm f/2.8
– Minolta MD 50 mm f/2
– Minolta MD Celtic 135 mm f/3.5
– Minolta MD Rokkor -X 45 mm f/2
– Minolta MD Rokkor -X 50 mm f/1.7
– Minolta MD W.Rokkor -X 28 mm f/2.8
– Minolta MD W.Rokkor -X 28 mm f/2.8
– Nikon Nikkor 24 mm f/2.8 AI
– Nikon Nikkor 50 mm f/1.4 AIS
– Nikon Nikkor 50 mm f/1.8 AI
– Nikon Nikkor-H Auto 50 mm f/2
– Nikon Nikkor-P.C Auto 105 mm f/2.5 AI
– Nikon Nikkor-S.C Auto 50 mm f/1.4
– Nikon Nikkor-UD Auto 20 mm f/3.5 AI

I think that’s a very good and important news coming from Adobe. We can expect many more of such profiles to be added in the future. Great!


Did Diglloyd just post the first image samples shot on the new Otus lens?

A short hint: What you see on that Diglloyd post (click here) could be the very first image samples shot on the soon to be announced new Otus 28mm f/1.4 lens! Why can we be almost sure this is the new lens?

  1. Diglloyd did not unveil any lens info.
  2. He is known for testing new Zeiss lenses in advance.

He writes about the “unknown” lens:

Of course, many lenses could not do anywhere near so well as here—this is excellence in flare control and maintenance of contrast in a blindingly bright sky/sun.

So is it the Otus he is talking about?


(High credibility rumor) Zeiss to announce new Loxia and Otus lenses between October 12 and 16.


(High credibility rumor):


Prepare your credit card if you want to buy some new high quality glass! We have just been told Zeiss plans an announcement someday between the week of October 12-16. What we can almost certainly expect to be announced are:

  1. New Loxia FE 21mm f/2.8 lens. Based on the Zeiss 21mm f/2.8 Biogon ZM lens design (listed here on eBay).
  2. New Zeiss Otus 28mm f/1.4 lens for Canon and Nikon mount.

I have no info yet about possible other lenses.
