focal length + TC is reported accurately now
2

I don't know if this has been reported, but the Z7 and I presume the Z6, now show the correct focal length when a TC is attached. Previously, when a TC was used on my 400 f2.8E FL VR, the focal length reported on a DSLR was more of an approximation rather than the correct focal length. So, 400 + 1.4x TC was shown in the EXIF as 550mm rather than the correct 560mm. 400 + 1.7x TC was shown in the EXIF as 650mm rather than the correct 680mm. On my Z7 the focal lengths are now shown correctly. So, 400 + 1.4x TC is shown as 560mm and 400 + 1.7x TC is shown as 680mm.

Not a big deal, but at least it is correct now. It actually begs the question, why wasn't it correctly reported on a DSLR anyway?
