18-55 DA Mk II - shows as unknown lens

Hi

In Lightroom it shows what the lens used is. It shows this for all my lenses, but for the K20D's kit lens it states 'Unknown Lens' Is this normal or has my lens somehow lost its identity?

Have you downloaded the latest LR updates? Software can only display names of lenses that were in its database when the software was produced.

I now have Lightroom 2.3 and it shows the lens info. Sadly of course all my previous imports still show as unknown lens but never mind - it's working now.

very strange...

try to use a "photo visualizer software" and read exif data: see if there are info about model lens or not.

You'll need to refresh the EXIF data in the catalog for everything imported prior to the 2.3 patch release. But be careful how you do it. Read the following...
