samyang 14mm distortion (software)

Hi,

Do you know if there's a lightroom or camera raw profile to correct the samyang 14mm lens? Is it good?

thanks

There is, it's at it's worst when used on a fullframe, goes into a moustache shape then. Some guy made a profile to correct it, and from what I've read, it should be awesome! I can't provide a link to the actual profile right now, could dig it up if you haven't already yourself.

PTLens is what I use.  Roughly 25... Works with other lenses too.

Install the Adobe Lens Profile Downloader program to see if there's an user-contibuted profile available. You can use the Lens Profile Creator tool to make your own profile.

There is at least one user-created lens profile out there (see above post). It is a fair amount of work to make a lens profile, so it is worthwhile to check. I haven't done a for-Adobe software lens profile, but I have made vignetting profiles for astrophotography programs, and it is work.
