Possible to edit exif data in Raw?

A series lenses don't report lens model or focal length. Focal length can be entered if the camera body has SR. Works for Q thru K-1, but the 645Z doesn’t have SR. SR work around falters with multiple lenses of the same focal length.

Is there a program that allows adding missing model and focal length? Found many programs that edit the data, but none say they work with Raw. I only shoot Raw.

Thanks,
barondla

Try Silkypix DSPro. I recently got the DFA 85mm 1.4. This is not recognised by my version of Silkypix but it does of course recognise the FL. I am able to add the lens name to a raw file during raw conversion and I only need to do this once. Subsequent conversions remember the name

I don't recall having ever edited exif, but I have used exiftool to pull data from exif. It has exif write capabilities though.

ExifTool by Phil Harvey

Edit: Forgot to mention that both DNG and PEF are supported formats.

Example:
exiftool -m -exif:FocalLength=85 -exif:FocalLengthIn35mmFormat=85 filename.pef

If you're using Lightroom, look for a plugin called Lens Tagger. I have been using it for ages. It allows you to edit lens model, focal length, aperture, and provides space for adding film data if you're using film bodies. It uses EXIFTool as a base, but works thru a popup in Lightroom. It's the first thing I do when I import anything.

That looks pretty cool. I usually use ExifTool + ExifToolGUI, but NameThatLens looks to be a great alternative. Bookmarked!
