This might be related: I can see 669 lenses in the Side-by-side lens comparison page, but only 658 lenses in the Lens feature search page. That's eleven more lenses disappearing, though this time between different pages.

Are these two pages using the same database? Or do the separate databases need to be synchronized? Is it a coincidence that 11 are missing/disappearing, or is this a related cause?

Some more details on the Side-by-side vs Feature search:

Unlike the lens type issue with lenses disappearing from the Feature search page, if I select all the brands, get the same count as if none are selected (658). So all the lenses in the Feature search page are assigned to a brand.

Sorting by brand, most brands are fine, but the follow are off:

  • Nikon (2)
  • Pentax (3)
  • Sigma (1)
  • Sony (4)
  • Zeiss (1)

Notes: Some of Pentax's lenses are listed under "HD Pentax..." in the Side-by-side page, and most of Zeiss's lenses are listed are "Carl Zeiss" in the SBS page. Grouping them together left the Feature Seach page short by the numbers listed above.

Two of the Pentax lenses missing from the Feature search page include the Pentax 06 Telephoto 15-45mm and the Pentax HD DFA645 Macro 90mm F2.8.

This totals 22 lenses mising/disappearing from the OP Lens type compared to the Side-by-side page.
