K-5II Record EXIF at 8mm?

Does the K-5II/IIs record EXIF focal length data at 8mm?
That is one of the bigger annoyances of the K-5, in my opinion. I have to employee a work around before I can use lens corrections on the Sigma 8-16mm.

Probably not, since they share the same firmware for the most part.

No, it doesnt. But there is a workaround here:

Yes, as you see, I made a few posts in that thread
I was hoping to get not have to go thru that process, but I guess I am out of luck.

I assume bounce flash is still an issue too?

As far as I have read, the Samyang 8mm fish registers focal length correctly in the exifs.
That leads to the conclusion it is actually a Sigma lens issue... nothing about the camera.
Thats interesting...I wonder if ssomeone has tried contacting Sigma about this

Even if they agree, we will have to send the lens back for modification...
