Lightroom/Camera Raw: Olympus 12-40 f2.8 lens profile

My camera is an Olympus OMD-EM1 and I am using the raw images in Lightroom 5. When I use the drop down menu in LR5 for the lens profile, there is no option for the lens I am using, which is the Olympus Zuiko 12-40mm f2.8 Pro.
I am interested in finding out:
1. Is there a profile available now or in the near future?
2. Is there another work around?

Thank you.

Hi John,

Micro Four Thirds cameras generally bake the lens correction data into the raw image files, so there is no need for an external profile. Lightroom does not indicate this in the lens profile panel, though it is possible that may change in a future release. If you were to view the image in the Adobe Camera Raw plugin 8.x you would see a bit of information on the lens correction panel about the built-in profile.
