it would be awesome to get support for the Canon PowerShot G7 X Mark II.

Output of exiv2:
Exif.Image.Model Ascii 29 Canon PowerShot G7 X Mark II
Exif.Canon.ModelID Long 1 (60227584)
Exif.CanonCs.LensType Short 1 (65535)
Exif.CanonCs.Lens Short 3 8.8 - 36.8 mm

And i also included a sample picture.

Is this enough information or am i missing something?

I'm not to sure what you want here. Exif.Image.Model is "Canon PowerShot G7 Mark II". Do you want us to recognise the lens? Is'nt that a compact/bridge camera with a lens that cannot be changed?

There's a new feature in exiv2 on the trunk for v0.26. You can update the file ~/.exiv2 with the name of your lens.

$ exiv2 -pv --grep lens/i http://dev.exiv2.org/attachments/download/1094/IMG_0645.JPG
