    I have been searching for this alot!
    I can't seem to find any Raw support (besides opening the images) in lightroom.
    No camera calibrations, no lens corrections, non of that.

    i just got my camera a few days ago.

    any help?

    thanks :)

    As far as I know Lightroom doesn't need any for the G series. i have a GF1 and the raw files are fine in LR without correction.

    On my Nikon equipment, lightroom will offer lens profiles and camera profiles to automatically correct for distortion, vignetting, etc.. I also noticed that there are no profiles for my panasonic equipment (panasonic isn't even in the "make" dropdown)

    That's because Panasonic RAWs contain lens correction data which is automatically applied by LR.
    Open the RAWs in say C1 or DxO, and you can have a look at what they look uncorrected.

    Then there's Adobe Lens Profile Downloader, where a few Panasonic Profiles can be found, and imported into LR/AC, but they are not that spectacular.

    LR and Panny RAW

    I think you need LR 3.6 or better for Lumix m43 RAW files. I tried 3.6 and everything was ducky then bought LR. The version that came was 3.2 and was not happy with my RAW files. Placed my license on 3.6 and everything was good again. LR4 works fine with Lumix
