After installing W10, lenses that were previously correctly identified, were identified as "unknown lens" (Nikon 28-300 and Tamron 150-600). In Develop module "Lens Corrections", the Nikon was automatically chosen and I could choose the Tamron from a list. They still showed up as unknown lens in the Grid view metadata.
