Would adapted aperture data expand the Oly market?
2

I've been exploring adapted film lenses on top of my existing MFT arsenal. I love to explore effects, even if regarded as "poor' image quality. A beauty is in the eye thing.... Nothing ventured, nothing gained, etc.

One disadvantage (without using the voice recorder) is limited EXIF information with adapted manual lenses , especially an aperture setting. Sure, I think most mirrorless cameras do the same but why can't Olympus acknowledge their value to adapted lenses? Why not have the ability to record the aperture by manually using the control dial to create an aperture setting for the EXIF? I realize the next hundred shots may all show f 2.8 but that's my choice... or error. Sure, the control dial would have no actual aperture function but it could be used to record a setting for those who'd like to have the information later on. I think Nikon uses an asterisk on certain recordings.

I'd guess this would be a firmware job but rest assured, if I knew Olympus offered such a feature, I'd be very interested. Legacy lenses wouldn't hamper my appreciation for native MFT and Olympus would simply have something that offers more than others.

Anyone interested?
