Re: PTLens + fisheye lenses

Automatic lens selection is a possibility for a future release. I want to do this without changing the database as several other vendors are linking to it. Here's the initial thought...

Examine camera makernotes. I know that Canon and Nikon record min/max focal length and max aperture. Not sure about Pentax. I would save this info, along with a history of lenses you have selected, in the system registry. When a new image is opened PTLens would examine exif info plus the history of lens selections. Based on this information it would find the appropriate lens.

In this way PTLens would "learn" from your prior selections. Anyway, it's something that will probably appear in a later release.
