ExifTool returning 2 'Focal Length' values

From the command line I'm running ExifTool against an Olympus .ORF file and I'm seeing 'Focal Length' reported twice:
Focal Length                    : 42.0 mm
Focal Length                    : 42.0 mm (35 mm equivalent: 84.1 mm)

The one showing the 35mm equivalent shows up when I view the file using ExifToolGUI as well under the ----Composite ---- list.  However, there it shows a 'Tag Name' as 'FocalLength35efl'.

I'm trying to parse the output using PowerShell to create a hash table from the values... but the duplicate 'Focal Length' name is tripping me up.  Is there a way to omit the 'Composite' tag information from the ExifTool output?

Thanks for this great tool.

Update: I think I might have just answered my own question. It looks like there is an -e parameter that omits the composite tags from results.  Just stumbled across that under Improving Performance.   :)
