Hi Fredrik,

This is likely a bug in the firmware.  Many Canon models write the wrong values for the FocalPlaneX/YResolution tags.

Thanks!  The first lens was added in ExifTool 11.04, and I will add the second one for ExifTool 11.15.

Hi all, thanks to Phil for this amazing tool.

I have a new Nikkor 200-500 lens and I am seeing a [6] on the end of the lens string when I query the metadata.
Does anyone know what this means or is it some extra info that hasn't been decoded yet?

Code: [Select]
  "Composite:LensID": "AF-S Nikkor 200-500mm f/5.6E ED VR",
  "Composite:LensSpec": "200-500mm f/5.6 G VR [6]",
  "MakerNotes:Lens": "200-500mm f/5.6",
  "MakerNotes:LensDataVersion": "0204",
  "MakerNotes:LensFStops": 5.0,
  "MakerNotes:LensIDNumber": 174,
  "MakerNotes:LensType": "G VR [6]",

Cheers

That is a bit in the LensType field that is currently unknown.  Please let me know if you have any idea of what it could be.  I have made a note that it could be related to FL lenses.

Ah I wondered, well I might be able to assist a little.
My lens doesn't have any Fluorine elements, so I don't think it would be that..
The most obvious thing I spot reading specs etc is that it has a electronic diaphragm which seems to throw an extra E into the designations..
See: http://www.nikon.com.au/en_AU/product/nikkor-lenses/f-mount/fx-format/zoom/af-s-nikkor-200-500mm-f-5-6e-ed-vr#tech_specs
and: https://kenrockwell.com/nikon/200-500mm.htm#spex
My only other guess would be the SWM autofocus (Silent Wave Motor) or IF internal focus but pretty sure they are both used in a lot of lenses, so that seems unlikely..

Not sure if there are any other lenses with that unknown code showing to compare with, but happy to help research if none of that info above helps.

Thanks

Thanks for the feedback.  Out of all the Nikon samples I have here, the following lenses show with bit 6 set:

AF-S Nikkor 800mm f/5.6E FL ED VR
AF-S Nikkor 600mm f/4E FL ED VR
AF-S Nikkor 500mm f/5.6E PF ED VR
AF-S Nikkor 105mm f/1.4E ED
AF-S DX Nikkor 16-80mm f/2.8-4E ED VR
AF-S Nikkor 24-70mm f/2.8E ED VR
AF-S Nikkor 70-200mm f/2.8E FL ED VR
AF-S Nikkor 180-400mm f/4E TC1.4 FL ED VR + 1.4x TC
AF-S Nikkor 200-500mm f/5.6E ED VR

So I think you are right about the "E" designation.  I'll add this definition to LensType.

Thanks!

I didn't check them all but yes of the ones in that list they all seemed to have the E somewhere in the name and mention of an electromagnetic aperture mechanism in the description.
Hopefully that solves that mystery  8)

Since I updated the firmware of my Sigma 150-600 Sports lens ("Sigma 150-600mm f/5-6.3 DG OS HSM | S") to version 2.0 (through the use of the Sigma USB dock), the lens is reported as "Unknown (368) 150-600mm".

No other changes were made: same lens, same camera (Canon 5D MkIII).

Any clue to this "problem"?

Hi Yves,

Great, thanks!  I'll add these two lenses in ExifTool 11.52.

- Phil

Edit: The 70-200mm was already known, so only the 85mm was added.
