Lens profile request for two overlooked Sony lenses

Greetings. I would very much love to see lens profiles added to Lightroom 5 for the following two lenses:
Sony DT 18-250mm F3.5-6.3
Sony DT 11-18mm F4.5-5.6

Since these are missing, I went ahead and bought DxO Optics Pro because they do have these profiles. However, their software introduces image degradation compared to my preferred Lightroom-to-Photoshop workflow. Noise reduction and sharpness are noticeably inferior. It would be just perfect if I could remove vignetting and distortion in Lightroom (so I could continue to use Lightroom's superior noise reduction, sharpness, and contrast tools).

thanks much

There are profiles for both of those lenses available at the Adobe Lens Profile Downloader site, although they are both rated only 3 out of 5. Might be worth investigating while waiting for "official" profiles to be produced by the Lightroom team.
