Can you tell Subject Distance from EXIF data?
May 3, 2012

Seems like most "example" photos posted are cropped. Is there any way to tell from EXIF data how far the subject was from the camera? Couldn't this be computed via the focus/lens system? If not, why don't cameras incorporate a "distance to subject" feature like range finders have? Seems like valuable info when evaluating image quality.
