Lens Profiles on K-1

Has anyone been doing any work creating lens profiles for lenses not in the default list from Adobe?

I've been doing a bit of shooting with F 28/2.8 and though its not offensive there is some distortions to correct.. I just have no talent at it. Any blog posts worth reading on "how to"?

I would like one for the FA*24...
At Lensfun you can add the images and they create a profile which you can use in darktable for example. I don't know any better alternatives.

If you are using Lightroom, you could create a preset for your lens. Shoot a brick wall and the fix distortion in the Lens Correction section of the develop module. You could then shoot a wall that is 18% grey to then adjust vignetting. Save the corrections/adjustments as a preset.
A quick search of the internet found this: Lightroom Lens Corrections Explained - Photography Life

I believe that since both f28/2.8 and FA 24/2 are pretty old, the profiles are available in Lightroom. Just ensure that you keep Lightroom up-to-date with the latest updates.

I assure you F 28/2.8 is not on the default list in Lightroom. I guess I am shooting brick walls - drat.
