When I import photos with Lightroom, they seem to loose part of the lens data that DxO uses to process images with. For example, a photo with the lens Nikon 12-24mm f/4 AF-S will just be 12-24mm afterwards, and DxO won't know which lens algorithm to do the processing with.
Is there something I'm missing, or does Lightroom always modify the EXIF like this?

I'm importing as they are, either RAW (NEFs) or JPEG. I know Lightroom isn't supposed to touch the EXIF, but somehow the lens data gets missing or corrupted, and I'm wondering if theres a setting on Lightroom that does this? I notice the Lens info gets turned into the same as whats in the Lens tree in the Metadata Browser.
I have found this lately, although I found out it has been going on since April. Using the same camera and lenses, one day all the info is there and the next day it is gone and hasn't come back. When did 1.1 come out? Did this change in 1.1?
I'm having the same problems with LR1.2 and DxO plugin (using method 2 as described by DxO): imported as DNG and incorrect lens information. The original NEF is OK when read directly by DxO, haven't tried using NEF files in LR yet.
