I was recently playing around with the metadata in Olympus (ORF or JPEG) images, e.g. as generated by cameras like the E-5.
It seems that exiftool is able to "decode" more metadata information from (I guess) Olympus' binary tags, than exifv2 does.
I haven't compared everything so I can only give two example now (but probably there are more such metadata fields):
$ exiftool P3096244.ORF | grep "^Scale Factor"
Scale Factor To 35 mm Equivalent: 2.0
$ exiftool P3096244.ORF | grep "^Field"
Field Of View : 65.1 deg (3.51 m)
I haven't found equivalents of these in exiv2 output.
Would be nice if exiv2 could catch up with all what exiftool supports here (and vice-versa).
If you need sample images, don't hesitate to ask :)
