When importing raw files with Bridge CS5 the exif contains the focus distance. In CS6 it seems to be stripped out seems to be in the move from cr 6.7 to 7.1

Which camera model are you using? (since this may be specific to certain file formats)

7D and 60D all lenses. All were recording distance with 6.7
Further investigation of my photos leads me to believe that 6.7 may be the only version that does record the distance. At least it wasn't in some earlier versions.

What I know at this time:
The distance info began showing up with CS5 and was present with all Canon from 40D on.
It continued to be present with CS6 beta and the early CS6 program but quit when CR 7.1 was installed.
CS5 with CR 6.7 still imports with distance info in the file.
The only place the distance info ever displays for me is in postings on pbase.com.

Not a big problem but a curosity at least and a feature I would like to see continued.
