So the lens was announced 2.5 years ago, and still no lens profile. It's kind of frustrating, because it's not a Soviet Union lens from 1970s, it's a popular lens for Sony full frame mirrorless cameras. Interesting enough, profiles for newer (and less popular) Samyang/Rokinon lenses, such as 35mm f/2.8, have been added. Adobe Lens Profile Creator is no longer available, and the official website suggests using this portal to connect with the development team. Come on guys, I've been waiting for too long! Please, add the profile for the lens!
PS: Also, Lightroom has a profile for Rokinon 50mm f/1.4 AF, but not for Samyang 50mm f/1.4 AF, which is THE SAME lens.

I really think that Samyang/Rokinon should be held responsible for supplying this information to Adobe.  Somehow those companies understand that this is need to properly use their product.  Does Adobe have to purchase the lens and then do the test for something that Samyang/Rokinon/Canon/Nikon/..... are selling?

I always believed that Adobe created their own profiles for lenses.

Adobe does because the the lens manufacturers don't. Purchasers should yell at the seller to supply the information necessary to use the lens. I never understood why Adobe didn't tell people to get it from the seller in the first place. Why should it be Adobe's responsibility to make it. You paid someone not Adobe for the lens.

A lens profile is a part of Adobe software, a lens manufacturer shouldn't create a profile for a piece of software which is not free. I pay $120 a year for Adobe CC and I believe I can count on the support of popular lenses. No matter if manufacturers do their own testing and profiles or not.

Isn't it the same as file formats? You pay big bucks and wait on Adobe to figure out the format because the manufacturer hasn't shared it with anyone. How frustrating is it when you purchase a camera and you can't use the good software to finish your images. I find that the manufacturers don't care once they have your money.
Adobe shouldn't be left off the hook in all of this but the camera people don't respect their users or they would go out of their way to make you happy from day one.
Enough.

So use the Rokinon profile. Select it for one image, then behind 'Setup' choose 'Save New Lens Profile Defaults'. From now on images taken with your Samyang lens will automatically get the Rokinon profile.
