Lightroom/CHDK: Anyone know of a lens correction for sx260hs or sx40hs ?

CHDK is getting close for the sx260!! In beta stage but getting there!!

And the raw (DNG) output is, for me at least, an improvement over the in-camera jpegs, I like it!!

So, very soon a nice lens correction file for the sx26hs would be VERY handy.

I assume that any comparable camera & lens combo (barrel/vignetting/etc) would really improve the raw lens correction, and then allowing for 'enhancements' to that would really make things so very sweeeeet in LR or PS!

As it is I am using the S95 or S100 corrections but they are not quite enough.

FYI, LR version v3.4 & v4 are being used by me.

Thanks if you have a file!!

FYI:

I will answer my own question, No! Or at least not in the Adobe database for lens profiles or via google.

I did find a sx230hs 'raw' lens correction file for LR, and it does work well.

I also got 'raw' files for a S100,S95 (2 each) and can make use of either of the 3 to get a decent results (corrects vignetting, barrel & does not crop so much), depending on the zoom length used.

Good Luck you CHDK users!!

PS: I get quite a bit 'wider' shots via CHDK than from the jpeg in-camera, so the lens is more like a 24.5 or 24mm at wide angle! And I believe the general results are better than the jpeg, more control on NR & sharpening, + the obvious WB advantages, pics look good @ 100%!!.
