Does the Sigma fp record the focal length of adapted, non-electronic lenses in the EXIF? I've been trying to ascertain this, but haven't been able to find an answer. I've read that the camera can register profiles for manual lenses, but there's not a lot written about this, and the camera manual is massive.

Thanks in advance to whoever knows and shares the answer.

When I use an adapted, non-electronic lens on my SD15, I set the camera aperture to be the same as that set on lens aperture ring. The camera aperture setting is recorded in the EXIF - even though it is not communicated to the lens, obviously.

The fp may or may not work the same.
