Request for PhotoLab support for the Olympus 150-400 f4.5 Lens

Hi,

Please can you add PhotoLab support for the new Olympus 150-400 f4.5 lens that is now beginning to be delivered. DXO has a strong following with us wildlife micro four thirds guys and support for this lens and use with the MC14 and MC20 teleconverters would be very much appreciated!

Many thanks, Peter

Thanks John, I’ve added a request as suggested.

Best wishes, Peter

I have added the same request - suspect the issue will be dxo getting hold of a copy of the lens to do their work - but would be good to know. Also, whether there is a “good enough” workaround in the meantime

Hello,

I have noted this lens for the roadmap but we need to get a sample of it to do our measures and edit new Optics Modules.
I can’t give you a date of support yet.

Regards,
Marie

Thanks Marie, I’m still waiting for my lens to arrive, I’m told it should be in the next month.

For how long does DXO need a lens in order to capture the raw data to build a module? I’m wondering whether one of us can visit DXO with a lens, if the measurement process can be completed in a day or so?

Best wishes, Peter

Hello Peter,

we would need the lens 5 days (from Monday to Friday) as we need to do the calibration of the lens alone but also with TC 1.4x and 2x.
If anyone is near Pari with this lens we would be happy to welcom him or her :wink:

Best regards,
Marie-Catherine

Noted - is there a workaround which will at least let the lens sharpen function work (or a recommended setting for the generic sharpen function)? It’s a great lens with great jpegs but at the moment I am struggling to replicate 300mm PRO lens quality on RAWs after processing given there is no dedicated module.

Hello @s5urf ,

no sorry, if there is no optic module then lens sharpen won’t work, you have to use unsharp mask.

Regards,
Marie
