Willie recently asked where he could find a Lightroom lens profile:
I spent the last 2 weeks looking for a lens correction profile for the Tokina AT-X 16-28mm F/2.8 PRO FX Lens. I use this lens on a Nikon D700 and I shoot RAW (DNG) files. I process my photos in Adobe Lightroom.
After a little research, I noticed that my Lightroom 5 does, in fact, have a lens profile for the Tokina 16-28mm lens. I also checked the lens profile list at the adobe site and that list indicates that Lightroom supports the lens. There are two ways to check if Lightroom supports any given lens:
This whole discussion with Willie, and the research I did to answer his question, made me realize how much I depend on the Lightroom lens profile for my wide-angle lens and that my lenses table needed some updating. There are very few wide angle lenses these days that don't have Lightroom support. There is only one lens in the lenses table that doesn't have a Lightroom profile:
There is a period of time when a new lens like the Tokina 11-20 or the Canon 10-18 comes out before a profile is available, but within months there is usually a Lightroom update that provides a lens profile. Don't ask me what happened with the Tamaron 11-18mm and why it never got a profile.
