There aren't any Tokina lens profiles offered by Adobe themselves, for any lens mount, including Pentax's K-mount.

To date, I've not received any Tokina lens profiles from forum members, although this thread has somewhat cooled down, now that Adobe offer their own Lens Profile Downloader, albeit only as a prerelease preview. A quick check of their downloader doesn't find any Tokina profiles either, though.

Unfortunately, I can't guarantee that there aren't any Tokina profiles available somewhere, because I'm no longer actively checking for new profiles on this forum, or elsewhere on the web. I'm still happy to add any new profiles anyone has to offer, and definitely want to know whenever any are released, but I don't have time to actively hunt them down given that the official downloader is available now.

Which is all to say, there aren't any Tokina profiles that I'm aware of, but they may exist somewhere. If you find any, let me know. If you don't find any, but decide to make your own, let me know. And either way, best of luck to you! ;-)

What Sten said. With raw, I can decide what gets done to the picture after the fact, and fine-tune the process.

Remember, though, if you prefer in-camera corrections, you can process raws in-camera on recent Pentax models, and apply lens corrections in-camera when you process the raws there.

Use one or the other, not both. That will, as you guessed, over-correct.

(That said, if the profiles themselves had originally been made for use on JPEGS shot with the corrections enabled, they might be able to achieve a higher correction quality -- but it seems likely to me that the difference would be negligible and not worth the effort of making the profiles.)

So yeah, it's a one-or-the-other situation.

You're correct, nobody's profiled that lens yet (or at least, if they've done so, they've not released the results publicly here.) It being such a relatively new lens, I'm not surprised.

Hopefully someone will do so, given time, but you might consider being that person yourself. The profile creator is free, and the process is relatively straightforward, if perhaps somewhat tedious. Everything you need to know to create a profile yourself can be found here:

Hi Mariano, welcome to the forum! The reason there isn't a link is because that lens is supported natively by Camera Raw and Lightroom. You don't need to download anything, so long as you're running the latest versions. Make sure you're using at least Camera Raw 6.1 or Lightroom 3.0, and you'll find the lens profile is already on your computer. Sigma themselves provided the data for the Adobe-supplied profile.

Hope that helps!

We can't upload the profiles here ourselves, as they're not our work. We can request the original creators do so, but it's entirely their own decision.

Installing profiles manually works just fine though -- many of us have done so. (I don't even have the profile downloader on my own system.)

If it's not working for you, you're probably not putting the profiles in the right place, or perhaps you've not restarted Lightroom after placing the profiles. (You have to do so.)

What's your operating system, and where are you putting the profiles?

Yes, we've mentioned the downloader previously. Unfortunately it's still not built into Lightroom or Photoshop / Camera Raw, and is bundled with software labeled prerelease, so I'd guess many (or most) users aren't going to download it yet.

Glad to help.

By the way, folks, Adobe just released Lightroom 3.3, Camera Raw 6.3, and DNG Profile Converter 6.3, and there's a nice surprise for Pentaxians -- fourteen new official lens profiles made in cooperation with Pentax. Guess they've been listening to our hopes and wishes, eh? ;-)

Edit: I've now updated the first post to include all 14 new profiles. Some we already had third-party profiles for, and some fill holes in our coverage for lenses that weren't previously profiles. Great stuff! Christmas came early in Pentax-land. ;-)

From the official Lens Profile Creator FAQ:

-----
Where should I place my LCP file so that I can use it in ACR and the Photoshop Lens Correction plug in?
You can place the lens profiles under a user specific or a shared all user location.

User profiles location:
Mac OSX: /Users/(User Name)/Library/Application Support/Adobe/CameraRaw/LensProfiles/1.0

Windows 7 or Vista: C:\User\(User Name)\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\CameraRaw\LensProfiles\1.0

Windows XP: C:\Documents and Settings\(User Name)\Application Data\Adobe\CameraRaw\LensProfiles\1.0
Shared profiles location:
Mac OSX: /Library/Application Support/Adobe/CameraRaw/LensProfiles/1.0

Windows 7 or Vista: C:\ProgramData\Adobe\CameraRaw\LensProfiles\1.0

Windows XP: C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Adobe\CameraRaw\LensProfiles\1.0
-----

Lightroom will pick them up from the same place as Photoshop would, so you'd use the same locations as above. Hope that helps!

Just a quick update for those paying attention to this thread. Adobe just released Lens Profile Creator prerelease 3, and for the first time it now includes a lens profile downloader function. (Yes, that might eventually negate the need for this thread, but until we see it issued as a final release, and discover whether it's integrated into Lightroom / Photoshop themselves, I will continue to maintain the thread nonetheless.)

No other changes disclosed in the new release. You can get it here:

Hah! Don't feel bad, it was an easy mistake. You've done a great thing with the number of profiles you've shared here, and I'm sure quite a few of your fellow Pentaxians will appreciate your hard work...

Hi Glen

Thanks for letting us know! The author is Christine Tham, who added the profile in this post:

https://www.pentaxforums.com/forums/post-processing-articles/112707-adobe-len...ml#post1207277

If you could contact her, and let her know, that'd be great. Unfortunately I don't have the time and lenses to test every profile myself, so I'm reliant on others' help such as your own in catching these errors. :)

I do have on my list to go through when I've time and add the authors' names (and links to their member pages and/or the posts where they made the profiles available). That should at least make it easier to get in touch...

Yes, I believe both versions of that lens are optically identical. :)

Thanks, Christine! I've corrected the name in the first post, as the A061P is actually a different model to the A06P. It adds a 'Di' designation, which implies that it uses different coatings to the previous non-Di model. (Di, in Tamron-speke, means "Digitally Integrated Design", ie. intended for use with DSLRs.)

If you're interested, the brochure and manual for your model are here:

http://www.tamron-usa.com/lenses/prod/assets/pdfs/28_300xrdi.pdf
http://www.tamron-usa.com/assets/pdfs/28-300di_manual.pdf



We have a profile for the AL WR version, but you can also use it with the non-WR version. They're optically identical -- the only difference is whether or not the lens includes weather sealing.



According to Adobe, profiles don't have to be made with the same camera body that you own to be useful -- for example, you could use a profile made on the K-7 with a K10D. That said, if all other things are equal, the best results are likely to be obtained when using a profile made with the same camera body. In the real world, the differences between the degree of obsessiveness demonstrated by the people creating the profiles will play a bigger role than which body was used, though. ;-)

As regards the Lightroom versions, I only mention those for Adobe-supplied profiles, and it's only stated so you know which version Adobe released the profile with. That way you know, for example, that if you're using Lightroom 3.0 and have a Tamron SP 90mm F/2.8 Di MACRO 1:1 272EP lens, you'll want to upgrade to Lightroom 3.2 to get the profile for that lens. (For now, it's likely you'll upgrade anyway for the bug fixes etc., since the updates are available free of charge. At some point in the future, this information will become more relevant though, when a major LR update has been released, and you have to pay to upgrade to it.) ;-)

GREAT work, Christine -- thanks so much! I've added all of these to the list in the first post.

If you have a moment, could you please confirm for me that the Tamron is this specific model:

http://www.tamron-usa.com/assets/pdfs/A06.pdf

There are a lot of similarly-named lenses in their product line, but I *think* that's probably the one you have.

I'll look forward to adding this too. :)
