Behavioral issue: use of a lens profile results in modifications to the raw DNG files for color shading and vignetting (vignetting alone for mono). RAW ≠ RAW.
Risk of Damage: any situation in which the wrong lens profile is use results in incorrect and irreversible modifications to the raw DNG file. For example, a profile for a 1mm lens being applied to a 90mm lens, or vice versa.
