Adobe has yet to supply any Samyang brand lens profiles for any camera.

There is a third-party crop-frame lens profile for the 14mm f/2.8 Samyang on Canon available in the Adobe Lens Profile Downloader.

Search www.adobe.com for it.

Please check out and search if there are any Samyang lens profiles that matches yours using the Adobe Lens Profile Downloader. Type in Samyang in the make field and search. I remember seeing a bunch of Samyang lens profiles shared by the customers a month or so ago. Good luck.

The ALPD is very difficult to find things with.

There is no contains-filter only match-initial function and most of the lens model designations are encoded in the camera made column so are impossible to find without carefully scanning the camera make to find the word Samyang or samyang in the parenthesis following the camera model designation.

Either the data should be separated into Camera and Lens properly or there should be a Contains type filter on the Camera and Lens columns so someone can type Samyang and see all the corresponding profiles.

For Canon cameras there is a Samyang profile for the 14mm but not the 24mm

For Nikon both profiles exist.

For other cameras I gave up looking because the interface is so ridiculous.

It was a limitation of the UI components (it was a Flex UI component) at the time. There was no support of edit combo-popup control. 

For all the popup menus on the top row as shown below, one can type in any text and ALPD will essentially do a wildcard search. The same idea as the Contains type filter that you proposed. But we could not find a way to make it apparent with the existing Flex UI control.

It works if you select the camera model, i.e. Canon or NIKON, replace the All in Lens Model with yang, optionally hit Enter, then tab out of the Lens Model field. It doesn't work if the Lens Model is blank when you type yang.

I was typing Samyang as suggested earlier and that seems to always auto-complete to the first SAMYANG lens and will only match just that lens. So you have to wildcard search with something other than what one of the Lens Model values starts with.

Here is what the lens model popup show when I type 's' :-).

Right, but your "s" has already been converted to a "S" due to forced initial-text-matching of the uppercase SAMYANG so you're missing the lower-case "samyang" profiles further down.

The only way to see those, after typing an "s" is the manually scroll down.

The problem is that Samyang and samyang are sorted to different halves of the list by using a case-sensitive sort and it's impossible to jump down to the lowercase set via typing a lowercase "s" because it's immediately converted to an uppercase "S" and matches the top half.

Type "yang" and tab out of the Lens Model field and look at what happens, watch how many more profiles you'll see, but over in the initial Profile column.
