Lightroom Lens Correction Rokinon 14mm?

Hi there,
I recently purchased the Rokinon 14mm F2.8 lens. Is there any way to download a lens correction profile for this lens? I don't see Rokinon listed the options at all.
Thanks.

It's been around for quite awhile so I can't help but wonder why there isn't one. Perhaps Adobe requires payment for including one?

Which version of LR do you have?
First, Rokinon is just rebranded Samyang. Samyang makes certain lenses that then get sold as Bower, Rokinon, ProOptic, Walimex, Vivitar, Falcon, and others. Sometimes the same store sells the same lens with two different names, for different prices. But LR doesn't have lens corrections for any of them. Guess Adobe just doesn't care about this brand. But there is a lens profile utility, where users can make their own profiles.
You can search these forums, I uploaded a Rokinon 14mm lens profile to some thread. It is custom made by a forum member. The distortion correction works great for me.

If you download Adobe's Profile Downloader, there is a user profile for it under "Nikon D700 (Samyang 14mm f11)" -- works pretty good.

But you will have to manually choose it each time since your lens lacks the data contact to provide identification in the EXIF.

After downloading the file, how do I import it into Lightroom?

This link has the full steps:
Rokinon 14mm Lightroom Lens Profile - Sven Stork

But in short:
QuoteQuote:
After downloading the lens profile you need to copy the file into the Lightroom lens profile folder. Depending on your operating system the folder locations are as follows (just replace [your user name] with your your username):

Windows: C:\Users\[your user name]\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\CameraRaw\LensProfiles\
Mac OS X: /Users/[your user name]/Library/Application Support/Adobe/CameraRaw/LensProfiles/

Usage

After the lens profile is installed you can use it with RAW files (JPEG files are currently not supported). The profile should work for any full frame camera. To activate the profile select the following values in the lens profile dialog:
