Description

My new Tamron 70-300 mm F4–5,6 Di VC USD is identified as a Canon EF 28-105 mm both in Digikam and UFRaw.
Is it because it is a new lens?

Exiv2 version is 0.21.1

History

#1 Updated by marie-Noëlle Augendre about 6 years ago

  • File IMG_8930.CR2 added

Here is a RAW picture taken with this Lens

#2 Updated by marie-Noëlle Augendre about 6 years ago

I just tried exiftool and here is (part of) the result of the command exiftool -a -u -g1 IMG_8930.CR2

Lens                            : 70.0 - 300.0 mm
Lens ID                         : Tamron SP 70-300mm f/4.0-5.6 Di VC USD

So ExifTool can give the right lens.

#3 Updated by Milan Knizek about 6 years ago

Attached are two patches: one for the current svn, the other for version 0.21
(I could not compile svn, however, the test on the attached image with 0.21 passed through well.)
