Availability of DXO Profiles for manual K/A/M lenses and K-5

I recently bought a K-5 to use with my collection of pentax manual lenses. I was wondering whether there is available somewhere a library with DXO profiles for K-5 and manual lenses? I made a few searches but I have been so far unsuccessful

Supported equipment

Click on the "Supported and planned combinations", then use the pull downs to select Pentax, the K-5.

Unfortunately, you will see that they don't have any modules for the old, manual focus lenses.
They have just got around to doing some of the third party AF lenses, so it is very, very unlikely that they would do the legacy MF lenses.

Your best bet is to create your own lens profile for Lightroom. I have never done it myself, but from what i have read, its not hard, just tedious.

DxO supports only DA and FA lenses. No manual lenses of any kind (except Rokinons, in Nikon and Canon mounts).

Depending on what you want DxO to correct for you, some custom Lightroom lens profiles or even something like ptlens may do the trick.

Since only DxO makes lens modules for DxO, there are no third party options.

Thanks, I wasn't aware that third party modules were not available with DXO... I'll check PTLens (I'm using Aperture on Mac so no Lightroom solution).
