Stubborn! (LR4)

Apr 28, 2012 11:21 PM

I am one of the users of manual focus non-CPU lenses on Nikon bodies,

especially the shift lens 28mm/f3.5.  Ever since LR2 I am reporting that

Lightroom interprets wrongly the EXIF data as generated by Nikon bodies.

Note that the lens is "registered" with the D300 (or D7000 in this example)

and that EXIF contains the information 28mm F/3.5.

 

Unfortunately, ah well, LR 4 still has this flaw. An example:

 

20120428230013.png

f/0.0, "the infinite light"!

 

Needless to say, this is not correct. To be consistent with all other indicators,

in parenthesis we should have the lens information:

 

1/160 sec, ISO 1250, (28mm f/3.5)

 

One improvement is that the wrong aperture indication is now removed.

In LR3 we would have seen 1/160sec at f/3.5 etc, what was completely

wrong. Correct is that LR does not know the actual aperture value of

this lens.

 

Of course, one might argue, it is a secondary issue, not affecting the

quality of the image processing.

PS: It is also stubborn that this forum's spell checker still considers

the word "Lighroom" as a misspelling. Come on Forum Master, add that

word to the dictionary!!

    Spell checkers are local to your computer. You can set words as correct spellings.

    I don't believe that the forum has built-in spell checking, Thomas: it's presumably browser-based, as I certainly can't invoke spell checking except from my browser.

    Thomas, you need to report the EXIF error at Photoshop.com where bugs are now reported.

    Thomas,

    It is NOT a flaw nor a bug. With manual lenses there is no chip in the lens to tell the camera which lens is mounted. Therefor the information is not transmitted into EXIF and into LR.

     

    When you set the lens information in the camera it is for the meter only. The lens opening used will appear in EXIF but the lens will not be identified.
