Manual Lens Profile Selection

Would be nice to be able to manually select the manufacturer and model of any lens in the database (similar to Lightroom).  Presently this is not allowed.  I use a Sony A7ii with lenses from Leica, Canon and Zeiss.  None of them are automatically set in the EXIF info and therefore, the lens correction settings cannot be applied.   Is there any work around to this issue, presently?

    I’m a little confused. ON1 Photo Raw 2018.5 provides that function when working with RAW images. When editing jpegs, the selection drop down tool is greyed out. Is this something different?

    If you are using a Leica or Canon lens via an adaptor, on a full frame Sony. Then unless ON1 can borrow a similar lens, adaptor and camera body, it could be difficult to make an accurate lens correction profile. Also, would enough people use that particular lens, adaptor, body combination, to make the excercise worthwhile?
    Maybe what you need is a facility to allow you to take a shot of a test card, with the combination, and then convert it into a lens profile?

    I agree with the above: On1 does already have a long list of lenses from many manufacturers, including vintage MF lenses. The two MF lenses I use are on there: Samyang 85mm F/1.4 and the Nikon AI-s 50mm F/1.8, although I turn OFF lens correction due to the way On1 generates more noise on Fuji RAWs.

    Extremely surprised to see that you cannot manually select a Lens profile, I use Samyang and Laowa lenses, and have no way to select the lens profile…..not so much an enhancement as a fault…..

    I’ll take this even further. I have HD Pentax-D FA 24-70 which doesn’t have profile on software.
    Anyhow I happen to know that this lens is optically awfully close, if not exactly same as Tamron SP 24-70mm F2.8 Di VC USD (Just without in-build stabilization which is useless in Pentax) which have profile in ON1 Raw.
    In other software I did go around this problem by manually adding profile (text json-based files there), but in this it’s impossible.

      I’ll take my words back. Support for my lens is not mentioned in web pages, but it exists in software!
