Exiv2:lensName misreporting for some CR2s
Exiv2::lensName(exifData) seems to prefer the "wrong" EXIF entry in some cases, as "30mm" is reported as lens instead of "Sigma ... "
$ exiv2 -pt IMG_4017-preview3.jpg | grep -i lens
Exif.CanonCs.LensType Short 1 Sigma 30mm f/1.4 EX DC HSM
Exif.CanonCs.Lens Short 3 30.0 mm
Exif.Canon.LensModel Ascii 4 30mm
Exif.Photo.LensSpecification Rational 4 30/1 30/1 0/1 0/1
Exif.Photo.LensModel Ascii 5 30mm

The problem was that Exif.Canon.LensModel (and hence Exif.Photo.LensModel) only reports the focal length (checked using ExifTool). I have changed the easy-access function to use Exif.CanonCs.LensType.
