No, And That Caused Me To Stop Using Aperture, As, I Use "Lots Of Lenses", :-)


1. No, and that was a big enough issue for me to stop using it (of, course there are others, too). Aperture is still on my Mac (in case it's vastly improved with next version); but, I have been using Adobe Lightroom and CS3. With, the Adobe products, not only are my lenses identified, but so are the specific Nikon DSLR Camera, I used to shoot the images with, by serial number ------ quite helpful, as I use two different D80 DSLRs and 2 different D200 DSLRs.

2. With Aperture, there was no way, that I could easily search images by the lens I use, as I can with Adobe Lightroom and CS3,

3. I use a GPS with my D200 DSLRs, and I like the ease and accuracy that Adobe Lightroom, using google Maps, with just a click from within Lightroom, nearly instantly goes to the geographical location of where my images were shot, using this service,

Does Aperture read EXIF data that identifies what lens was used? I
know I can select focal length, but the results there could be either
a prime or any zoom I've used at the same focal length. I used a
trial version of Lightroom, and I seem to remember that it actually
identified the lens used and not just the focal length and aperture.
If there is a similar way to get the same info in Aperture, then I
would appreciate someone letting me kow.
