Adobe Photoshop Lightroom provides lens profiles for a wide array of lenses. Not every lens is currently profiled and of those profiled not all are profiled for all camera and file types. For example, there may be a profile for a particular lens and camera mount for the raw file but not for the JPEG. Normally profiles for JPEG are not supplied unless the camera does not apply a correction (e.g. iPhone, GoPro). 

A complete list of profiled lenses can be found here: https://helpx.adobe.com/x-productkb/multi/lens-profile-support.html#Supported_lenses

Lens correction for all Micro 4/3 (MFT) lenses and cameras, including Panasonic and Olympus cameras, and other cameras (including Fuji X,  Leica Q, plus many point-and-shoot models from Canon) happens automatically without any interaction by the customer. 

Note: You should not expect to find any profiles listed in the pop-up notes, because the corrections are always applied.

If you are unsure whether your lens is supported automatically refer to the "info" button/icon on the Lens Corrections tab.

If your lens is not on the supported lens list and is not one of those whose correction happens automatically, you can create your own profiles using the Adobe Lens Profile Creator. Download the Adobe Lens Profile Creator: https://helpx.adobe.com/photoshop/digital-negative.html#resources 

If you desire an Adobe-created Lens Profile, please make your request in the comments of this thread and be sure to include the full lens model/description and the camera mount you are desiring.

Keep in mind that lens profiles cannot be made for tilt / shift lenses. There is no way to record the tilt or shift settings in the Exif data. For more information see this post:
