    I'm just now getting around to learning LR3 (ver. 3.6). I use a GF1 w/ Pany 20mm & Pany 14mm lenses (mostly). Are there any recommendations out there for setting up LR for lens correction or recommendations for good presets?

    Thanks in advance.

    No lens corrections are necessary. Well, let me be a little more specific:

    Distortion corrections for all Oly and Panasonic m43 lenses are automatically written to the raw file, and automatically applied by LR. Furthermore, Panasonic lenses contain the data for CA correction, and a Panasonic lens on a Panasonic body writes that information to the raw file, too. LR will apply the CA correction automatically.

    Using Oly lenses or Oly bodies, no CA correction is written to the raw file, so if you ever decide to buy Oly equipment you might choose to create CA presets for specific lenses.

    It's actually a bit more complicated. The distortion is automatically corrected, but it isn't fully corrected (the reason being that fully correcting would lose too much resolution and lens width). So if you really want zero distortion, you'll have to manually adjust it or find a profile.

    CA on Panasonic lenses is fully corrected, at least as best as I can tell.
