Hi, dear Adobe Photoshop team!
I'm from Russia, so excuse me my bad English.
I have an interesting idea for you! Here it is.

Recently I found out, that your Lens Correction feature work not so nice, that most peple are expect of it, I believe... I mean that: as focal length become smoller and angle of view wider, final corrected image become more ugly! Captured near the frame edges objects become so stretched!! More over, angle of view olso degrade!
Two days ago I've tryed your Adaptive Wide Angle tool. What can I say? It's amazing! It is allow to correct all spherical and perspective distortions, and to keep whole angle of view and propotions! But for good quality I have to work about 15-20 minuets on every image! And I thought: why not to combine those two great features (Lens Profile Correction and Adaptive Wide Angle tools) in one - Wide Angle Lens Profile Correction tool? Your old Lens Correction tool work with 3D projection model and correct the perspective as good as spherical distortions. I speak about not vertical or horisontal perspective, but about depth perspective, which allow to see far objects smoller than near objects. But for wide angle lenses correction of depth perspective destroy all of lens benefits, it is reduce angle of view and stretches the objects near the frame edges! I think it is not so hard to keep correction of spherical distortions and vertical perspective and ignore the correction of depth perspective, using the same Lens Profile! This idea require some pictures to explane it, but I can't find where I can attach those pictures. So if you are interested in such idea, I can send such pictures on your e-mail!

From Russia with love, Sasha Zak!

P.S. Upss... I'v just saw how to add an image, so you got it!

Have you tried "Adaptive Wide Angle" in CS6?

Hi, Jeffrey!

Of course I've tried it! It's great! Except of a lot of time to create good looking foto...I just look for more wellcome, easy and accurate instrument like a Lens Correction tool, but without it's bugs... Here are two fotos to compare. I spent about 20 minutes to create first one with Adoptive Wide Angle tool...
