No FocusDistance metadata for Z mount lenses?

Re: No FocusDistance metadata for Z mount lenses?

So it seems. My FX lenses (85mm f/1.8G and 70-300 AF-P) report focus distance, but that particular tag (Nikon::LensData0800\11\FocusDistance\0) doesn't contain data for Z mount lenses (at least not my 24/70 f4 S). In general, metadata is a mess, in large part because manufacturers (not just Nikon!) hide a significant amount of data they think only they need. There's a possibility that Z lens focus data is recorded in proprietary maker notes that aren't (yet) 'cracked' by ExifTool.

Also, I'm not entirely sure how accurate the focus distance data are.
