Lightroom’s Lens Correction Panel Just Became Absolutely Essential To Me (and lots of other folks, I imagine, too!)

Hi, everybody. I’m back from 10-days in China (my workshop with Rick Sammon), and I took Canon’s brand new 24-240mm RF-Mount Lens with me, and this lens has lens issues that have made Lightroom’s Lens Correction Panel absolutely essential to me or anyone else using this lens.

I did a totally unfiltered Field Report on what it was like using the lens, and my field report actually includes a Lightroom Tutorial or two that you’ll want to see, even if you’re not considering this lens. It’s the good, the bad, and the ugly – check out my field report below:

Kinda shocking right? Heck, Canon should ship a copy of Lightroom with every unit (ya know, that and a lens hood might be nice. Don’t get me started again).

Hope you found that helpful.

Heads up: A week from tomorrow is the big Worldwide Photo Walk

Go sign up right now to join a photo walk near you – a week from Saturday (on Oct 5th), and be a part of next week’s mega-walk around the world. You’ll super-dig (and it’s free, so there’s that).

Have a great weekend everybody!

P.S. Thanks to all the photographers who came out to my seminar in Nashville on Wednesday – appreciate the great turnout and the gracious hospitality. Tennessee people are just the best! Next stop, Dallas and Richmond in October. Hope you can make it for the day. Tickets here. 🙂

    Hi Scott,
    We all follow you around like puppy dogs. So when you go off on a great trip like this and take a new product (well 2 – the Canon Mirrorless AND this lens), it definitely makes an impact on the buying purchases of your readers – you were an influencer, before they existed! So do you think that people should switch (I do not use the word upgrade) to a Canon mirrorless camera and maybe buy new lenses? I mean the other option is to stay with a 5d_x or a 1d_x or even a consumer model or PNS. Is it really worth it? – remember there are different types of shooters – sports, nature, landscape, portrait, etc. Who would it benefit?

    @bob – from one Bob to another (but my name is really not bob)

    Summary: Nice range of focal lengths, highly usable – you just have to check 2 boxes in Lens Corrections in LR/CR to eliminate CA and even then maybe touch the “Manual” tab to finish it perfectly. You can do most of that with an import preset btw.

    As to the range, it’s almost as good as my Oly 14-150, and I don’t have the vignetting or CA. It’s also an almost para-focal lens, which is good for video. 🙂

    Nice informative video though. It would be nice if a Lightroom preset could be automatically applied, but only for the specific lens.
