No FocusDistance metadata for Z mount lenses?
1

I had reason to review a large number of images for focus distance.  I opened up ExifToolGui (v5.16) using ExifTool v11.63 (latest version).

I examined photos taken with a Z7 and either the Nikkor 500mm f/5.6 PF (using FTZ adapter) or the Nikkor 24-70mm f/4 S.

All the photos taken with the adapted 500mm PF had a FocusDistance metadata value.  None of the native lens photos had any FocusDistance metadata property.  It wasn't that it was 0 or blank, there was no metadata property for FocusDistance.

Has this been discussed before?  It seems to be a lens property not a camera body property since a Z7 was used with both lenses.  Do the Z mount lenses really not report the focus distance in the Exif metadata?
