Recently a our Cinematographer at work pointed out that that list of cameras and lens presets is a bit dated and needs to be updated.

So tell us.
What cameras, and Lenses would you add to the list?
What should be NT priority in your opinion.

Lets see if we can reach a consensus.

Technically Real Lens camera (and third party RadialShift camera)
uses internally a set of three polynomial numbers per focal (several for a zoom),
there are estimated trough a calibration process done with a few images,
could be done by every one with PTLens software (may be Hugin too)
but best performed by the PTLens developer himself, he is the author
of the actual lens data bank of Real Lens camera in Lightwave.

It would be very nice if Real Lens affected lens flares properly.

We we got a bunch of high end Canon cameras (SLR and VIDEO) in our studios. I am sure we could NT on this.

Synth eyes creates a very high order lens distortion file....would be a good thing to allow that import...
But that will not describe falloff or chromatic aberration within the lens....

Realistically every lens is different....there optical centre of distortion will not be the same from lens to lens.
If you need to calibrate to match a shot it would be best to generate the lens calibration to match it....
