not to hijack the thread here, but Olstrup or Rol,  wondering what either of you do when using 35 Summicron v4 on the A7r3 in terms of applying a lens profile corrections in lightroom?

I've asked about this elsewhere, and been directed to the procedures for making my own profile via adobe raw download procedures...the directions for doing this include a 22 page pdf, that looks like a lot of work!

I like the idea of just not using a profile most of the time, I'm aware that applying one will cost a little sharpness, detail at extreme edges of the frame, etc...and I like the natural vignetting some of the time...

It's an issue though, when I'm hand holding the lens at like F4 and shooting in fog, snow, or otherwise, light even background.  I'm not worried about distortion (which is prob nill anyway) but that vignetting can sometimes be distracting. Do you fellows just use the 35 cron asph profile?
