Herb the corrections (vignetting primarily) are applied to both DNG and
JPEG. As you note they are not essential. My experience was that forgetting
to change a manual setting when I changed lenses got ittirtating (just due
to the wrong EXIF data). But I was very fortunate in that I had just two
lenses uncoded, one of which I sold off to buy the new 35 and the other I
got John Milich to machine (the mount) for me. So I'm all good to go and get
the correct EXIF info which is convenient as well, of course.
