Thanks for the offer, but I only need to see any "Unknown" entries for the lens in the metadata that ExifTool extracts.  If you find any of these, tell me the camera make and exact lens name and I'll add it to the list.

It sounds like your lenses may already have definitions in ExifTool.

Hi Phil, just happened upon this thread, although i listed this recently int he bug forums

with exiftool 11.75, the "LUMIX G VARIO 35-100mm F2.8II" was listed in the composite lens id.  with version 11.81+, this lens is showing as a lens id (and lens type) of "unknown (2 34 10)

note, in 11.75, there is no composite tag of "lens type"

I've been inspecting the makers notes for a Panasonic Lumix G9 using CCR-Exif code provided by Chris Rollins. CCR-Exif uses a .INI file to decode most tags from the makers notes. Chris provides some known tag translations and your website provides many more. Here are the ones I've discovered for lens info:

[TPanasonicMakerNote.$00c4]
;see also Lens Type $0051
;this tag not valid for G1, GH3 or G7
;not reported correctly by 6K mode
TagDescription=Lens Type Make
0=Olympus
2=Panasonic

[TPanasonicMakerNote.$00c5]
;see also Lens Type $0051
;this tag not valid for G1, GH3 or G7
;not reported correctly by 6K mode
TagDescription=Lens Type Model
4100=OLYMPUS M.9-18mm F4.0-5.6
4102=LEICA DG MACRO-ELMARIT 45/F2.8
4117=LUMIX G VARIO 12-35/F2.8
4121=LUMIX G VARIO 14-140/F3.5-5.6 II
4135=LEICA DG 100-400/F4.0-6.3
4145=LUMIX G VARIO 45-200/F4.0-5.6II

Great, thanks!  I'll add these as soon as I get a chance and post back here if I have any questions.

I'm finally getting around to adding these.  ExifTool already had definitions for all of these but the last one.
