    Do I Need to Have My Pentax Lenses Profiled in LR

    I have some older Pentax A and FA Lenses for the 645Z. Do I have to do any micro adjustment or anything else in LR ?
    I don't know if I need to do this to each lens. Thanks

    Hi,

    Lens profiles correct for vignetting and distortion.

    You don't really need it mostly, unless you will shoot architecture. The Pentax lenses are probably no great offenders. Vignetting is usually visible but often actually enhances the images.

    Micro adjustment for focusing is something else, but that is made on the camera.

    Best regards
    Erik

    Yes, highly recommend trimming the AF for each lens. It can help. I used LensAlign do trim the 645 lenses.
