Customize Lens Correction Vendor List and Lens Model List

I use several lenses that are not recognized by LR so I have to assign the lens correction profile manually a lot.
So I would like to get rid of all those vendors and lenses I do not own or use.

Any chance to achieve that?

Kind regards

Instead of trying that, make Lightroom recognize and assign your lens profiles automatically. Select a lens profile, then choose 'Save New Lens Profile Defaults' behind 'Setup'. From now on Lightroom will recognize the lens, unless it's a fully manual lens that does not save any metadata info.
