Adobe tool suite does the correction

I'm using ACR and Adobe Bridge for most of my workflow and I have those tools setup to do it automatically, so my RAW images are already corrected when I open them for the first time.  Lightroom would be the same.  I was waiting for those profiles to be available before I bought the lens.  But, yeah, for other tools that don't have the profiles yet, I can understand the frustration.  It probably won't be much longer.

To me, it's like having a lens with two personalities.  The corrected personality is a regular ~16mm linear lens at the wide end.  The uncorrected personality is a ~15mm quasi-fisheye lens at the wide end.  The latter gets used less often, but I like that I can turn off the correction on an image and get a few more degrees of FOV if needed.
