Automatic lens correction for manual lenses no longer works in AP 1.7.2?

Recommended Posts

I have a question on automatic lens-correction:


I own a manual lens (Laowa 7.5 mm/f2.0), for which a lensfun profile exists. I use it on the Olympus OMD-EM1 (Mark 1). As the lens is fully manual, it does not write any Lens related infos into EXIF data.

So I thought in order to activate automatic lens correction, I have to write the EXIF data myself. I edited the tags "LensModel", "FocalLength" and "FNumber" with exiftool and inserted the data, which is found in lensfun.

This did the trick in AP 1.7.1


But now with the update to 1.7.2 it no longer works... Can anybody help me with this topic?

I solved the issue:


I added the line              <model lang="en">None</model>  to the misc.xml file in the lens profile directory for the Laowa lens and now AP recognizes the lens
