Add support for Leica Makernotes (was: include proper exif data for Leica M9)
Apparently, Leica does not use the LensName tag but instead:
exiftool L9997545.DNG|grep -i lens
Lens Type : Summicron-M 35mm f/2 (IV)
Lens ID : Summicron-M 35mm f/2 (IV)
Further, the actual aperture is also empty, however, this does not come
as a surprise, as on the Leica M9 this is only an estimated value,
because of which Leica chose not write this to EXIF but rather store it in
the maker notes.
- Subject changed from include proper exif data for Leica M9 to Add support for Leica Makernotes (was: include proper exif data for Leica M9)
Exiv2 doesn't recognize this Makernote format. So this is a request to support the Leica Makernote.
- Category changed from exif to makernote
- Target version changed from 53 to 0.26
Confirmed with exiv2 0.25. No Leica makernotes are recognized.
- Target version changed from 0.26 to 1.0
Target changes to version 1.0. Support a new type of Makernote is a considerable undertaking can't be undertaken for v0.26.
