Lightroom 5.6 and Camera Raw 8.6 Updates add Sony Lens Profiles

Lightroom 5.6 is now available as a final release. It provides additional camera raw support, lens profile support and address bugs that were introduced in previous releases of Lightroom.

Adobe Camera Raw 8.6 is also available as a final release for Photoshop CS6 and Photoshop CC. This release improves performance when batch processing images, both through the Save button in Camera Raw and when converting images to DNG in the DNG Converter.

The easiest way to update Camera Raw is by running the Adobe Updater app.

Updates to Camera Raw 8 for Photoshop CS6 only include new camera support, lens profile support, and bug fixes. The new features listed in the release notes are only available in Photoshop CC. DNG Converter 8.6 is provided for customers using versions of Photoshop older than Photoshop CS6.

With all current Sony Cameras already supported in Lightroom, the latest update adds lens profiles for the following Sony A-mount lenses in additional to those previously supported:


  • Sony SAL 28mm f/2.8
  • Sony SAL 16mm f/2.8 Fisheye

        1. Lightroom > Develop > Camera Calibration > Profile: Adobe Standard is the Default. Highlight it to bring up a popup menu of Sony Profiles.

          This only works with RAW files.
