Auto lens correction for Olympus 17mm f/1.8

    Exactly which 17mm lens is it? The name has to match exactly as the proper lens profile is select via a string search.

    Brian Lawson the name of the lens is listed is recognized in the panel "Lens Correction". (See Lens Info)

    Under "Lens Profile" the make is set correctly and "lens" says "no match". But I can set "Lens" by hand to my lens: so it appears in the list!

    To compare the lens names:

    Under the Info-tab on the top of the sidebar it says "17 mm (OLYMPUS M.17mm F1.8)".
    The tab "Lens Correction"
    Lens Info: "Olympus OLYMPUS M.17mm F1.8"
    To find the correct lens in the drop-down list (where it says "no match"), the lens is named: "Olympus M.Zuiko Digital 17mm f1.8"


    In the link you provided (Supported Lens Correction Profiles), the lens is named "Olympus Olympus M.Zuiko Digital 17mm f/1.8".

    To make things more complicated:
    It seems an issue relatad to the camera- / lens-combination. The 17mm lens is being correctly recognized when using my Olympus cameras. The bug appears when the 17mm lens is attaced to my Lumix camera. (I will do more testing and try the other lenses with my Lumix...)

    Olympus-Lenses that are working fine WITH my Olympus camera body:
    - Olympus Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED 12-40mm f/2.8 Pro
    - Olympus Olympus M.Zuiko Digital 45mm f/1.8
    - Olympus Olympus M.Zuiko Digital 17mm f/1.8

    Lumix-Lens not working with my Olympus body:
    - Panasonic LUMIX G 14mm

    Olympus-Lenses that are not working fine WITH my Panasonic LUMIX camera body:
    - Olympus Olympus M.Zuiko Digital 17mm f/1.8

    This is something you'll have to talk to tech support about unless you're up to manually modifying the Lensfun database. Lenses are identified by the combination of camera model and lens model. I suspect that the Lumix file does not contain an entry for that Olympus lens.

    I just looked through the .xml files for Panasonic cameras and your lens is not in them. This is why the program cannot automatically match the lens to the camera. The database does know about that lens from the Olympus body files which is why you are able to find and set it manually.

    Yes, I can confirm this.

    I ended up modifying the the files in the lensfun database of my Olympus and my Panasonic cameras. So: the Olympus lenses needed to be added to the Panasonic file. The Lumix lenses to the Olympus file.

    After making sure, the lens names are exactly the same as in the exif data it works fine.

    Cool, I'm glad you got it working.
