Could't APP directly pick up the lenses from the image info and set up the more sophisticated parameters of lens correction automatically?
Given you use an original lens matching the body: it does. ItÂ´s in the EXIFs. What do you mean: "more sophisticated informations"?
As well as Photoshop as an example can read "sophisticated informations" from the lens regarding geometrics for dealing with abberations and so on
APP/APG reads this informations also afaik from the EXIFs.
I guess it uses these informations for the lens-correction algos.
I have no information about how APP/G handles non-original lenses resp. lenses which donÂ´t provide any EXIFs in terms of lens-corrections.
ThereÂ´s an automatic feature . . but what it does exactly i donÂ´t know - but somehow it works fine . .
My experiences after about 6 years of use: APP/G does very, very well. My suggestion: donÂ´t try to save money on lenses - use the best you can afford
and better buy ONE real good lens than several mediocre ones.
