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.
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.
