    Incorrect EXIF with Adobe software and Leica

    Hi everybody, I use Lightroom 5.7.1, Photoshop CS6 13.0.6, Bridge CS6 5.0.2.4, on a Mac running Yosemite 10.10.2, and they cannot recognize the correct aperture through EXIF data.
    I am using 6 bit coded lenses on a M240 with 2.0.1.5 firmware.
    I have researched online the issue, but couldn't find any solution.
    Does anybody know a workaround for the issue?
    Thanks in advance!

    There is no transmission of aperture to the EXIF data when using M cameras and lenses. The best the software can do is make an educated guess as to the aperture used.

    This is correct. There is no electronic connection between lens and body and thus no communication of the aperture from M lenses to the camera, so there is no EXIF data available to Lightroom.

    Yes. Actual aperture settings are the camera's best guess, nothing more.
