Lens name on EXIF window

Postby kei on Fri Jan 23, 2009 9:56 am

Before of all, thank you for your great software.
It's simple, but very strong/smart tool for me.

One suggestion.
Could you consider adding lens name information on EXIF window ?
This feature is very important for me.
I know lens name <-> lens ID information is not opened from each DSLR maker, but
most of these information are already on the Web.

Thank you, again.

Yes, as you noted, this information is not documented and totally manufacturer-dependant. I can probably do something for some brands, e.g. Nikon and Canon, in a future version, provided that I can locate a reasonably reliable and complete source of information. Also I'd rather avoid adding a new line to this window, so the lens name, if available, might be displayed at the expense of other info (like the EXIF comment), for example after the camera model name on the last line.

Thank you for your reply.

I'm big Minolta alpha (now, Sony) fan, so I can contribute database for Alpha mount lenses.
(I have over 50 alpha lenses, and have complete all lens database in my hand.)
I desire this feature, really. Please let me know how I can contribute.
