I have been using LR 4.1 to correct the distortion from my Tokina 11-16mm f2.8 DX (Nikon) lens for about 2 weeks. Today Tokina disappeared from the Lens Correction drop down menu. I need to turn around photographs quickly, and this is not cool. Please can somebody help?

I dunno why it disappeared, but consider re-installing lens profile to remedy, e.g. via lens profile downloader.

Ok, thanks... but how can we do that?

Incidentally, I've discovered that missing lens profiles were all on photos specifically saved as DNG from another program.
This kind of baffles me, why on some photos do I get a choice of profiles from 17 different lens makers, while on some others I only get 4? This doesn't make sense, another LR bug?

Not sure what got lost in the DNG translation, but if you want to take a whack at re-fetching the lens profile again, this will do it:

http://www.adobe.com/support/download...

(if you get a "setup" error it's probably already installed)

PS - there will typically be more lens profiles for raws than jpegs.

I'd be curious however to know whether it's actually missing, or just disconnected.

It should be here:

C:\Users\{username}\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\CameraRaw\LensProfiles\1.0\Downloaded

or similar place on Mac.

something.lcp is the filename - you'll have to load into text editor to determine lens, unless you know of a better way.

Can you post an affected DNG? (using Dropbox or other sharing site) What program did you use to create the DNG?
