Could you add the Sony E 18-135mm F3.5-5.6 OSS lens to your database?

The product page is here: [[https://www.sony.co.uk/electronics/camera-lenses/sel18135]].

Realised that I am probably mistaken regarding the lens not being supported, I was following the link from [[https://www.darktable.org/2015/02/on-lens-detection-and-correction/]] which I think points to an old database. When I installed exiv2 and ran:
  1. exiv2 -pt IMG_1234.CR2 | grep -ai lens
    it gave:
    Exif.Sony2.LensID Long 1 Manual lens
    Exif.Photo.LensSpecification Rational 4 180/10 1350/10 35/10 56/10
    Exif.Photo.LensModel Ascii 24 E 18-135mm F3.5-5.6 OSS

Also saw a reply from last week to a similar query regarding the possibility of sorting such an issue by the user.

We get several requests every week to support new lenses. You can usually fix this for yourself with the file: ~/.exiv2 http://dev.exiv2.org/issues/1376

If you're unable to get your lens to work with ~/.exiv2, please report an issue on https://github.com/Exiv2/exiv2/issues/ as we are planning to make this forum "ReadOnly". Please attach a test file from your camera using the lens. You may leave the lens cap on, if you wish.
