This is my go-to lens for my V1. Always happy with the results. It has some obvious distorsion that can easily be fixed in ViewNX, NX-2, NX-D and DxO. But NOT in Lightroom (or ACR)!! Every other Nikkor1 lens (including the 70-300) has been added by Adobe except the 10-100. I could possibly accept that the original 10-100 PD is left out, but not this “bread-and-butter” lens.

Can anyone (Nasim) explain a possible reason for this omission. It totally disturbs a normal LR workflow.
