Software that sorts your images by focal length

I have an upcoming 2 week EU trip at the and of AUG and I want to take
only 2 lenses: 50mm 1.8G and 1 zoom that will be mounted on my
D800 pretty much all the time. (taking the small/light 50mm only for some
low light indoor shots - if even needed).
As far as the zoom goes I am leaning towards 16-35VR but also considering
24-120VR f4 very strongly.

I just returned from a trip to Colorado where I had only 16-35 f4 with me and took
almost 900 pics. This of course made sense as vast majority of my shots were
outdoor landscapes where wide angle was the way to go. On my EU trip I will be

visiting cities (LON, BRU, PAR, MUC, SZG), but I will be out in the mountains as well.

I know there is a nice freeware that can quickly analyze a group of pictures and

will spit out a summary showing the focal lengths (as well as other desired EXIF data)

in 'percentage' of usage. I'd like to run this on my Colorado folder to see if I 'really'

needed that ultra wide angle. I'd like to see if most of my shots were at the wider
end of of the lens, in the middle or in the longer range of the lens.

In other words - as much as love the wide angle 16-35, there are times where I
find 35mm limiting. This probably was not as much of a case

in my Colorado trip, but in Europe, where I will do also a lot of 'street photography'
I have a hunch that 24-120 f4 could be a better choice.

  • which of the two zooms would you take ?

  • do you know the name of the Freeware I am talking about?

I actually had this software installed on my old computer, but cannot recall the name.

Thanks in advance.
