You don't have to, just replace the "compact-canon.xml" and/or
"slr-canon.xml" files with the one that contains the information you need.
Or just edit the current files adding the relevant information. I use
darktable rather than gimp for raw processing and had to do that when I
upgraded my D200 to D7100. And there is still missing lenses in the
