Lens Profile for Tokina 11-16mm f/2.8 DX II?

I am soooo very frustrated with LR. I'm a newbie and am trying to correct the lens distortion on my Tokina 11-16 2.8 DX II lens that I used in combination with my Nikon D7K. When I follow the direction for LR 5.4, I noticed that the Tokina lens does not appear in my list of lens profiles - this despite the fact that Adobe says this lens does have a lens profile as of v4...

I'm on the 30 day trial period of LR - so I am testing the softward to see if it meets my needs. So far it doesn't. Can you explain why I am unable to see or access a lens profile for the Tokina?

Are you testing with non-Raw files? Try a Raw file. Profiles are not necessarily available for all file types.

Yes I am - just confirmed. As per the screen shot, I have other lens options, but not the Tonika.

Try a Raw file instead.

Rikk, I just found that I was importing a jpeg not a nef file. So, I did correct and imported the raw file. It is working now. Problem solved. Thanks! Seems like a little thing but Adobe could help by making this clearer.

I am noticing the same problem with imported DNG files. I had to go back and import the NEF file to get all the lens profiles, then do my LR development and then convert to DNG. This makes no sense to me after all the hype about converting everything to DNG. That means I have to add a an additional time-consuming step to my workflow. Will Adobe eventually provide all the same lens functionality you get with raw files, with DNG files?
