K20D/SMC 'M' Lens. Can I edit exif data?

Hi all

Recently got my first DSLR, the mighty K20D. Loving it and working my way through all the menus and settings. It came with the 18-55 lens cap.

I've since acquired a 50mm f1.7 SMC-M lens and it is a delight to use.
The only drawback is that it doesn't save any lens info.

Is there any software programs that will allow me to edit the EXIF data to include
the 'f' setting and maybe the lens ID and focal length. I've googled it and found a program that works with Linux and Mac. Unfortunately I'm running Vista Home Premium. I've waded thru a lot of this forum but didn't come across this specific query. I appologise if it has been covered before.

Cheers

Exifer should do the trick.

Is it Vista friendly?

Try this if you want to do one field at a time editing.

Yes - it is Vista friendly. I use it when I scan 35mm slides, as there is no decent EXIF, ITPC information in the scanned image - let alone camera and lens info.

I used this program in the early days to embed copyright.

Thanks for the info. Downloaded Exifer but it wouldn't install.

Somebody suggested PhotoME (freeware) which I have now installed, and it allows me to edit all EXIF data except the lens model which I'm sure I can fit in somewhere, or else include in the caption.
