Hi Andrew,

MFT cameras generally use opcodes to communicate lens corrections to Adobe Camera Raw/Lightroom. It's likely that these lenses will be supported automatically. The way to confirm when viewing an image is to look for a clickable Info icon on the Profile tab of the Lens Corrections controls in ACR/LR. This indicator will tell you which aberrations are being automatically corrected. If you don't see it then an external lens profile is required, or you may have an older version of the software that preceded the Info indicator.

The indication whether a built-in profile is being used was added to ACR 8.4 in CC (I think) and LR 6/CC 2015, so you won't see them in LR 5 or CS6, and this information about built-n corrections being applied only shows up in the new enough Adobe products if you have Enable Profile Corrections UNCHECKED.

Basically what happens with mirrorless cameras, that are relatively new technology as compared to DSLRs, is the camera already corrects the JPGs it produces and communicates the corrections in the raw file and Adobe uses the information in the raw file to replicate the camera corrections. The only way to see how bad the lens distortion is, is to use a third-party raw converter, perhaps RawTherapee, that doesn't perform lens corrections.
