    I'll keep that in mind if I break the one I have!I have been playing around with the AF a bit. Interesting discovery is that if you set the camera to wide AF (ie auto it picks the AF point) and cont AF...eye AF seems to work. Even if face detect is turned off!I've tried […]

ACR/LR Profile for A900+MinRS 24-85mm

Although it’s far from a perfect lens, this small 1999 Minolta RS optic is my favourite for general travel and everyday use on the Alpha 900. It is a convenient size and weight, performs well when stopped down a little, and has exactly the range and minimum focus I need.

Mouseover image to see effect of this profile used on a shot taken at 70mm focal length.

The profile created for ACR6/LR3 is at four focal lengths – 24, 35, 55, 85 – and two apertures, wide open and f/9. The chart distance ranges from about 120cm to about 4m.

To download:

// (24-85mm F3.5-4.5) – RAW.lcp

Right click and save. Correction of CA and distortion is pretty good, and this profile identifies itself correctly as a Minolta lens. It should be placed in the Sony directory of Adobe Application Support>Camera Raw>Lens Profiles.

    Thanks for this, I have the 24-85 lens, the last new Minolta lens I purchased at a good price, from a dealer in the Tottenham Court Road, London who had a load of them 8-9 years ago. Always pretty impressed with this lens from 9xi to A900 (the new SLT-A77 seems to relate back to the 9xi in looks). I must admit my favourite lens for the A900 is the Tamron 28-75 2.8 XR Di and I’d agree with Kurt Munger that this lens is an exceptional performer.

    Thanks very much for providing the Minolta 24-85mm lcp for us.
    It works very good for my lens with A900.
