Lenses not listed in the Lens Optimizer in Digital Photo Professional

As the topic title states my lenses are not listed in the Digital Lens Optimizer. I've placed the CD in the tray, and yet the program says it's connecting to the server, and when done, they are not found in the list. The lenses are:

 

EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS II

EF-S 55-250mm f/4-5.6 IS II

 

Why are they not listed? How do I get them?

 

 DPP version 3.13.0.1

EOS 70D / EOS Rebel t4i / EF-S 18-55mm f3.5-5.6 IS II / EF-S 55-250mm f4-5.6 IS II / Sigma 17-50 f2.8/ Canon EF-S 60mm f2.8 macro/ Canon EF 100mm f2.8 macro/ Tamron 70-300mm / 430EX II Speedlite / Canon FS 300

Re: Lenses not listed in the Lens Optimizer in Digital Photo Professional

60 people have viewed my question and so far no one has any suggestions? Is it because they're "kit" lenses, not the more expensive L? I would think there would be a profle for the Lens Optimization in Canon's own application.

Hi ronpete!

 

Thank you for posting.  There are many lenses that have available data for the Digital Lens Optimizer function of DPP, but there is no data for the lenses you listed.  Being a kit lens is not necessarily the reason why data is not available though.  Other kit lenses, like the EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS and EF-S 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6 IS lenses, do have available data.

Why do so many people say "FER-tographer"? Do they take "fertographs"?

Yes they are. That's why I don't understand why they're not listed in DPP's Lens Optimizer.

But Adobe Photoshop CS6 has the data in ACR.

Re: Lenses not listed in the Lens Optimizer in Digital Photo Professional

Better yet.

 

Why does Canon Digital Photo Professional Pro 4 NOT have all of the lenses that are supported in camera on the EOS 5D MKIII or EOS 6D?

 

I like to shoot RAW and post process at home. The way it is, many of my lenses are NOT supported in Digital Photo Professional Pro 4 but are supported (lens correction) by my camera. This forces me to process and convert my photos that are taken with those lenses "in Camera" and convert to JPG (which I really don't want to do until all post-processing is done.

I just downloaded and installed the lens data for the two lenses in question, using the "Lens" button in the tool palette of DPP 3.14.0.0.

Which ones did you find to be missing? The only two that I have that aren't on the list are the 16-35mm f/4L (which is pretty new) and the 28-105mm f/3.5-4.5 (which is pretty old).

Re: Lenses not listed in the Lens Optimizer in Digital Photo Professional

[ Edited ]

Of the lenses I have, the following are not supported by DPP 4 (However, they are supported "in camera" with EOS Utility 3)

 

Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II USM 
Canon EF 20-35mm f/3.5-4.5 USM
Canon EF 24-85mm f/3.5-4.5 USM
Canon EF 28-90mm f/4-5.6 USM
Canon EF 28-105mm f/3.5-4.5 II USM
Canon EF 28-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM
Canon EF 75-300mm f4.5-5.6 USM

 

I don't care if they are "old" lenses or not. Why have the correction profiles for "in camera" correction (when saving/converting to JPG) and not in DPP 4? They have the data, they could just port it over from the database used in EOS Utility 3.

 

These lens correction profiles bring new life to some of the old "film" lenses like the Canon EF 20-35mm f/3.5-4.5 USM lens. That lens has lots of distortion. However with in camera correction, it now produces good pictures.

 

I am not a professional photographer. I am a photography enthuisasts. I'll NEVER spend $1,000.00 or more for an "L" series lens (in fact I sold the Canon 24-105 f/4 L "kit lens that came with my EOS 5D. It was way too heavy, and the zoom on the low end was cramped (only 4mm movement between 24mm and 28mm). I like/use my Canon EF 28-105mm f/3.5-4.5 II USM and Canon EF 28-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM better.

 

Maybe my mistake is that I am using a program call Digital Photo Professional and I am not a professional. I noticed that that software leans heavily and supports the "L" series lenses.
