Lightroom: Add support for COPY EXIF data from image to another. EXIF data can get lost e.g. during HDR processing in an external program. It would be great if "Copy Metadata" would really copy ALL Metadata including EXIF data (capture time, camera make, model, etc.)

Yes, that would be useful. At the very least, I would like to be able to create a preset, so that when I copy EXIF metadata, it only copies whatever is specified in the preset settings.

For examples, I often want to include photo EXIF info whenever posting a photo on Facebook, blog or 500px, but since I can't just right click the photo and copy the EXIF, I have to go to Lightroom, look at the exif for the photo and then switch back to my post and type in the exif data from memory (sometimes it takes two trips into L ightroom to do that).

So I would love to just select a photo, right click and then select (Copy EXIF), which would copy to clipboard something like:

1/500 sec at f/2.8, ISO 200, 140mm

You should use Exiftool by Phil Harvey. It's much better than Lightroom at managing metadata and can easily do what you asked in your post.
