EXIF: No Lens Info for DFA100mm/2.8WR?

I recently got this lens, and I noticed that Photoshop isn't displaying the lens name. (It does for all my other lenses.) I then checked the lens info using PhotoME, and although it's got some info, it also doesn't display the lens name. I have a Kx with the latest firmware. Is this a lens issue, or an issue with the firmware in my Kx?

On other images, I noticed that although I used the DAL18-55, it displays DA18-55 AL II. I realize these two lenses are optically the same. Similarly, I assumed the lens name displayed for my WR would be DFA100/2.8.

Ideas anyone?

The lens must be newer than your software. Have you updated it recently?

I'd say the same thing ... your lenses are newer than your software ... hence why this is occurring.

I'm using Photoshop CS5 with the latest updates, including ACR6.1. It was released very recently, certainly quite a bit since the lens became available. Are you saying there's something newer than CS5????

Otherwise I guess I just have to wait for Adobe to catch up....
