Please note – the profile for the newly added Canon EF 16-35mm f/4L IS USM lens is not automatically located when applying lens profile corrections.  This is a bug and we will fix it in a future release.

The workaround is to:

Manually select the profile and choose “Save New Lens Profile Defaults” in the Setup menu on the Profile tab. From then on, the lens should automatically select when the profile is enabled.

Bug Fixes:

  • Fixed crash on launch in some cases on Hi DPI (Retina) systems.
  • Fixed crash when opening some Sigma SD9 raw files.
  • Fixed issue with JPEG images saved by Camera Raw not readable in some external applications.
  • Fixed automatic lens profile selection for Leica M (Typ 240) when using most recent firmware version.
  • Fixed issue with some Hasselblad H5D-50c and H5D-60 3FR raw images appearing slightly too dark. Unfortunately, this fix may affect the appearance of existing images captured with this combination of settings. It is recommended that you (1) purge the Camera Raw cache via the Camera Raw Preferences dialog, and (2) review previously captured images for unexpected brightness changes.
  • Fixed bug with converting Nikon D810 and Nikon D4S sRaw files to DNG.
  • Tweaked and updated the Adobe Standard color profile for the Nikon D810.  Please note that this only impacts customers that used Camera Raw 8.6 RC with the Nikon D810.
  • Please note – If you have trouble updating to the latest ACR update via the Creative Cloud application, please refer to the following plugin installation.
