RF 16mm in stock at my local store

They called me and told me that one had come in, so I went down there and bought it. A couple of things to know...

I shot RAW and DPP4 indicated that no lens profile was loaded, so I clicked "add profile." The box of lens options opened, but I had to manually scroll through the list to find the lens. Other lens profiles I have loaded automatically check boxed the right one. No biggie, just a FYI.

Just have a couple of shots with it so far, but I wanted to check out straight lines and how it handled distortion. I saved the RAW files as JPGs, then loaded the JPGs in Lightroom. I used lightroom's geometry tool set to "auto" to see what would happen.

I also loaded a RAW file into Lightroom, and since Lightroom doesn't have a lens profile for this lens, the photo looked pretty bad. Here are a few random photos from today.

With file opened in DDP4, saved as JPG, then that JPG opened in Lightroom and geometry correction set to auto

With file opened in Lightroom, no corrections, saved as JPG
