How about adding Focus Throw to lens details in the Lens database?

I was just playing with my SMC 50/2 and it dawned on me that the focus throw is HUGE, as in about 240 huge. Compared to the ~120 throw on the 77ltd and ~75 throw on the 43ltd. Just thought it might be a useful bit of detail when deciding on a lense, especially for MF lenses.

Just bumping this old thread instead of opening a new one, because I also think it's a useful addendum to the lens database which seems to not have been made yet (unless I oversaw it)

AFAIK we don't have this yet (though we added a ton more searchable data points).

I'll add this data point as something users can contribute together with the same system for third-party lenses. However, I have a feeling it would be tough to reliably gather the data for all lenses, as it would need to be done empirically. For modern lenses, we already cover the focus throw in the in-depth reviews (which definitely didn't exist back in 2009!).
