Adding missing lens info to EXIF

Is there some way I can add to the exif the missing information when using an old manual lens? I'd like to be able to add the lens name and what aperture I took the shot at.

Re: Adding missing lens info to EXIF

What I do, is add the data to the "caption" area of the image EXIF.

Would be interested too, however, if there was a way of actually having the focal length appear in EXIF under the actual "focal length" section.

With a K200D, you should be able to type in the focal length upon camera startup -- directly in the camera before taking pictures. This is when you have Shake Reduction activated. *ist D series cameras don't so focal length records as 0.0mm with old manual lenses.

i discovered recently that photoME can do it. unfortunately, the batch function is not yet built into the program. otherwise it is a great little piece of software.
