Why won't my DPP use Lens Data?
« on: February 11, 2014, 11:06:03 PM »
Cannon's DPP Lens Data Feature corrects for Aberation and other things using Canon's own measurements and algorithms.  Great, but for my 2 most used lenses, 24-70 IS II, and 70-200 f2.8 IS II, it always says the lens data is not available.  I have added and deleted the lens data at least 10 times, updated DPP to it's latest version and still is says Lens Data not available.  It does work with my 24-105mm f4 IS.

Works fine for me, I just downloaded and installed both of them to my PC.  Perhaps the Canon site was down for a while.  Try it again.  The 24-70 mk II file is 17 MB, the 70-200 MK II file is 25 MB

I have downloaded the lens profile at least 10 times. Updated DPP using the latest updates.  It's no problem to download them.  DPP just doesn't use them.

OK, after 2X removing and reinstalling (from my 5DIII disk) and updating, I reinstalled from my 7D disk (4years old) updated that, and it works!  No idea why that would be different.

It sounds like a corrupted file that was replaced by the 7D version.  computers can get bad files that are not updated or replaced because the newer version did not change them.

You can go to the Canon site and download all the updaters for DPP and the rest of the software.
That should get you updated to current versions. good luck

I've been having the exact same issue. My 70-200 f2.8 VII is OK but my 24-70 VII will not work. I'll try the fix. Thanks

Make sure your RAW files are the the largest size your camera can make with no compression.  In the middle of this I somehow got a hold of some files that I had accidentally shot as RAW size Medium, and on those files it said Lens Data not available.  Seems like it would be the same lens data, but it made a difference.

I had nothing but problems re-installng. The install went OK but every time I tried to update to 3.13.51 DPP crashed. I pulled out the disk that came with my 5D3 and the same thing.

DPP updater at Canon USA recognized my OXS as Mavericks. I must have repeated this about a dozen times. I then tried 10.9 option and the same thing. I finally tried 10.8 and it worked. I updated all my lenses and my 24-70II was accepted.
