Lightroom CC: Filter by lens and file type

I would love to be able to filter by lens type, similar to how you can filter by camera body. Would make it easy to see all photos taken with my 50mm, 23mm, 90mm etc. at a glance. Would also want to be able to see my raw vs JPEG files without the cumbersome searching of “.jpeg” in the search bar.

Very easy to do, just make a smart collection.
This could be like these samples

Good try Michel, but this is a Lightroom CC request, not a Lightroom Classic one. So yes, good request.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Lightroom CC: Filter to only show raw images.

It would be great it there was a search filter to only show RAW images. I tend to only edit RAW photos, so I'd like to only see RAW photos in the view. I'd also like to have a album that has all the RAW images in it.

Apple Photos app can do this and it's very useful. Should just need to be added as an filter option.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Lightroom CC: Ability to filter by file type, aperture and focal length.

The new Lightroom CC is great, principally because it's so fast but there are a few things I've love to see (re)included, in particular filtering.

Filter by file type, so I can quickly access my RAWs.
Filter by focal length and aperture, so I can quickly select all images taken on a particular lens.

Thanks!

There are occasions in which I want to be able to sort or filter my images by file type, separating DNG from JPG. It would be convenient to have this as an option in the filter menu. Alternatively, even a smart folder for DNG files would be helpful.

Please add the ability to filter files by filetype (e.g., RAW, CR, NEF, JPG, etc), not just whether they are still images or videos.

In the search box, type lens: and a pop-up of lenses should appear for you to select. Likewise, type extension: to do by file type.

Make sure you have the latest version, because the pop-up feature Victoria mentioned was added recently.

I came here to support request for lens filter, just to find out it was already implemeted. Typing "lens:" is not ideal, but better than nothing, pitty you need to google while it coud have its own filter section in UI.

BUT what I get from "lens:" search query is just focal lenght filter, not the concerete model or manufacturer of that lens. I am still missing that.

I think what you get in the "lens:" faceted search is exactly what you get if you use the Library Filter in LR Classic. A quick comparison looks pretty similar, except that Classic returns numbers of images per lens whereas LRCC does not.

I have some lenses that do include the manufacturer, others that do not.....but it's the same in both apps. If there's not a manufacturer specified in the results, I think it's likely that the lens doesn't/didn't send that information to the camera.

Go through the filters of the Library (Reminder, the title of the article specifies LR Classic)

Choose the right columns and you can easily select the various elements of the filter!

Yes, THIS is exactly what I want (Reminder, the article is tagged as LR CC too), brand and focal lenght. Now I am getting focal lenght only.

And I just found out why. I included some photos from other photographer into my library, where is focal lenght only included in EXIF, so the filter is now spammed with varoius lenghts he used. Down at the bottom is what I was looking for. Dammit. 

My bad, sorry for that.

To remove confusion: Everyone in this topic actually requesting a feature (as opposed to those replying) was referring to Lightroom CC. 

It looks like the title was accidentally changed to "Lightroom Classic" a few hours ago. I've changed it to "Lightroom CC" and removed the "Lightroom Classic" tag.  If anyone here has a feature request for Lightroom Classic, please start a new topic and tag it with "Lightroom Classic".  (Thanks once again to the Adobe marketers for the perspicuous naming.)
