    Supported Nikon Lens Not in In Pull-Down for Lens Corrections

    The Guy with the Problem

      I have (several hundred) photos taken on a AF-S DX VR Nikkor 55-300mm f/4.5-5.6G ED lens on my D7100 body.  When I load the images in Lightroom and attempt to locate the lens in the pull-down menu for Lens Corrections, it does not appear.  I've confirmed the EXIF data is correct (using Jeffrey Friedl's tool) and that it is on the supported lens list I found on Adobe's site here.  If I'm reading that (rather clumsy) chart correctly, the lens has been supported since version 3.6 (unless perhaps that lens on the list is an earlier model that was neither DX nor VR).  Any assistance would be appreciated.


      Mac OS 10.10.4, Lightroom 5.7.


      One thing I forgot to mention which could quite very likely be the foundation of the problem is that these shots were from before I started shooting in NEF (that is, they are JPG) and I (think) I understand that some lenses have support for RAW & JPG and some only support RAW.  If this is the case, is there anyway to know if this is one of the ones that does or does not support JPG?


      Thanks in advance!
