As a longtime Apple Aperture user, I am now using Lightroom. One of the features is Lens correction.

Those that use this feature are you always applying this feature or is it one of those "Depends" options?

Thanks.

I always use CA correction, and would also always use lens corrections too. The only reason that I don't is that there is not a profile for my Sigma 20-40 f/2.8 EX, which I use as my standard zoom on my APS-C bodies.

I use it some of the time. Love the transform function though for architectural stuff.

I usually first do the lens correction (distortion + CA correction) in DxO and then transport to LR.
But if I process my files in LR, I toggle lens correction on/off and see, what looks better to me.
Some files looks better to me without lens correction.

I usually only add it if I need it. Not all my lenses have a profile. I always tick the CA box as well. That works for most things if I use the auto straighten button, but I will use manual if auto button doesn't do a good job. Sometimes I'll use vertical or horizontal. Then after that I'll apply CA and lens profiles.

I found put how to add a lens so it is permanent

In the Lens Correction palette find the lens in Make and then Model.

Setup automatically changes to Custom.

Click on Setup and then on Save New Lens Profile Defaults.

Setup switches back to Default and new lens has been added. Now it will find it no matter which camera you are using.
