Do you white balance with or without a WA lens?

Can you please tell me how to white balance if I intend to shoot with a WA lens fitted? Do you white balance with or without the WA lens fitted?

Is this the same for manually setting the iris? Do you set your exposure manually with or without the WA lens fitted?

Many thanks
Neil

I've always WBd in the way I'm going to use the camera. IOW, if I'm using a WA I WB and set exposure with it on the camera otherwise your exposure in particular might be thrown off-if you're WBing off a white,gray or blue card you want to fill up the lens with it anyway so the WB really shouldn't be different regardless of whether you're using a WA or not but the exposure WILL be different in most cases.
