K-1 and LR5 issue.

I just got my K-1 today, tested it, and tried to download pictures to LR. It stopped working, then I restarted it, downloaded pictures, and now I lost my sharpness and color presets, but the most important, all my lens profile. There is no Pentax profile any more, and the selection of profiles is cut to minimum.
Did anyone have the same, or similar issue?

I don't see why this should be a camera issue.
You don't run Lightroom on your K-1.

I should not be, I guess, but it happened for the first time ever, exactly when I tried to upload the very first pics from K-1.

Eta: I'm an idiot , did not change factory default jpg to raw. Problem solved.

K-1 RAW support on LR 5.x is limited to DNG and then only by using the embedded profile stored in the DNG itself. Full support (at least as full as Adobe is willing to go) requires LR 6.x or LR CC.

Yep, I upgraded LR5 today, it does not read PEF files. So, now I have to buy LR6... damn it! Every two years invest in newer version...

Just use DNG files. It works fine with those (although no camera profile, it still has the lens profiles).
