I have lightroom 4. However it seems not to list a couple of my Nikon Lenses, 28-70 F2.8 and 28-85 . Does anyone have manual settings which are reliable for me to use??

Good News Kyle.
Adobe have a download of a free Lens Profiler that will enable you to easily create a custom profile for any lens.
When this lens correction was introduced in LR3, I downloaded the Lens Profiler as I planned to produce individual profiles even if all my lenses were already included. The first thing I discovered was that all my lenses were included and the corrections looked pretty good. Nevertheless I took a look at the Lens Profiler process. I would need a test chart and take around 100 images in different settings etc. probaby several hours work for each lens so I became less enthusiatic. However, I understand that once you have taken the set of images, it is then straightforward as the Adobe Labs software will sort them from the EXIF data and automatically produces the profile with little further involvement. Given that you do not have the profiles and they are not being offered in the next upgrade LR 4.2 (see another thread), you may have to have a go at producing profiles. If you do so, it would be interesting to hear how you get on.
I also understand that there may be an alternative. There is also a Profile Downloader available from Adobe Labs and I understand that this will give you access to other profiles created in the Adobe Community which may include those you are looking for. Finally, you could try requesting that Adobe provide the profiles; presumably if enough people ask it may get priority.
