Lightroom profile for HD 55-300 WR anywhere?

Lightroom 4.4 isn't picking up my HD 55-300 WR under Profile Corrections, nor do I see a profile mentioned on the adobe site Lens profile support | Lightroom 5, 4, 3 | Photoshop CS6, CS5 | Camera Raw 8, 7, 6

So is there one actually available?

You can use one of the two Pentax DA/DA L 55-300mm lens profiles - they should be exactly the same...

I think the profile might not be out yet. But for vignetting and distortion the other two should work.

Ah Thanks, guys.

but it doesn't auto pick it.. I need it to auto pick. Guess I'll have to wait ... LR6 should be around the corner. :c )

Actually I set the original 55-300 as it's default (didnt know that was possible until now) and now it auto picks... woohoo
