Hi,

I've just purchased the above lens and noticed that pictures shot vertically have meta data such is shutter speed, aperture settings but not when it's shot horizontally. JPeg files and not edited. My kit lens does not have this problem and only this prime lens seems to behave this way. Is it suppose to work like that?

that's weird... it should still have the data regardless of the camera orientation. i have horizontal/vertical shots but they still have the exif info.

Thanks mcn. I was actually trying to read the exif using bridge. When photos were taken with kit lens, it gets rotated automatically when previewing in adobe bridge and the exif data still exist even after the file was edited. However, with this prime lens, photos were at its original orientation and needs to do manual rotation and am unable to see any of it's exif data. Do you have any idea why is that so? I've tried with PictureProject and this software is able to read the info though

Most likely is the software you use to rotate the photos. It probably did not save the EXIF after the rotation.

From experience, I can agree with that. However, I really can't remember which software it was that caused this.

Now I'm on Mac and use Canon's provided software to auto-rotate. For resizing, I use Automator.

Under all these situations, my EXIF data is still retained.

You may want to download another EXIF viewer and see if the problem is caused to Adobe Bridge (which might be the case, because it's friendly to your kit-lens photos, but not the 50mm photos) or from the photo's EXIF itself.

I did not use any other software and did not do any manual rotation nor editing of pics. It just came raw from my camera, and the exif file for this lens cannot be seen from bridge. I changed lens to kit lens and exif files were present. I'll try to reinstall my software tonight and try again. :)

So it's Bridge that cannot read the EXIF file from the portrait photos shot with the 50mm right?

Try downloading another EXIF reader and see if it works. Could be Adobe Bridge.
