I just checked with ExifTool and it says Lumix 20/1.7.
So it seems Irfanview somehow got it wrong, does anyone know how the lens name is stored in Exif? Is as a string or is it a code?
If it is a code that could explain it!

I opened the raw file in Olympus Workspace and exported a new Full Resolution jpg file, if anyone cares. The original jpg was a lower res file, direct from the camera (to save space used in RAW+JPG storing mode). I also used ExifTool to dump the EXIF info into a text file, for the curious. Both are here, same place as the original files.

As far as I can tell, IrfanView simply got it wrong (and still gets it wrong on the new version). There is no info in the EXIF dump about the m.Z 14-42, although there is a "lens properties 0x4110" which may be the culprit.

No, the lens name is not written in clear in the Exif as provided by the camera. It is a code number, and from this code the lens type is deduced by some software such as Exiftools or Irfanview. I had an exchange of emails once with the creator of Exiftools, because one of my lenses (a Sigma 24mm Canon EF mount) was identified as a Canon 28mm (hence had the same code as the 28mm) but reported a focal length of 24mm. So as I understand it, he added a condition for if the focal length is 24, then the lens is Sigma 24 and not Canon 28. After that revision, Exiftools was reporting the correct lens type.

Thank you to all participants. The entries were varied and all great! I expected quite a few B&W entries, and wasn't disappointed. What I did not expect were some of the more colorful entries, which were a treat.

I want to make one (hopefully constructive) comment. @mcgillro : Rose, your replacement sky was beautiful, but I didn't see the light and color of the sky reflected in the water, so it felt artificial.

Also, one special mention to @Zeus1 : Thank you for cropping out that ugly waterfront condo and moving the waterfowl (ducks, I think) back into the frame. Not a fan of that condo.

As I said, entries were superb, but after repeated viewing of them all, I came down to my favorite five, and the following results:

Winner: @RichardC -- I loved them both, but the "wacky" one was my favorite, because it surprised me.

1st Runner-Up: @whatisinthebag -- My favorite of the B&W entries. Strong structure and moderate low-key exposure.

2nd Runner-Up, a 3-way B&W tie: These B&W entries were also well executed.
@BosseBe B&W -- low-key look with slight cyan tint and great detail.​
@Zeus1 #2 -- the high-key look, the crop. . . just ducky!​
@relic #2 -- a nicely executed and balanced full-tonal-range entry.​
Isn't Nik Silver Efex a great tool?

So Richard is up again. Done here.
