This conversation has been merged. Please reference the main conversation: Lightroom/Camera Raw: Display camera focus information

Where's the best place to post a features wish list? If Lightroom could support reading the focus points from the camera metadata, it seems like it would be easy to run an action to check those focus points for sharpness and automatically reject any images that aren't sharp. What about blink detection or facial recognition and auto tag for naming? If FaceBook can do that, I don't see why Lightroom can't. How about selecting a group of photos and having Lightroom check the faces and finding the best one? I work on a lot of other photographer's photos and for us that shoot events and a lot of photos... these would be huge time savers!

You can see the focus point when reviewing the photo in the camera, so it must be stored in the RAW file. Therefore I assume it can then be obtained by the LR software and shown on the screen - a VERY useful feature.
There are add-ins for Canon and Nikon but not, as far as I can tell, Olympus OMD range cameras.
