Photoshop losing Lens info from EXIF on TIFF files

I noticed some of my final jpeg photos were losing the lens info and others weren't. So I tried a couple things and revised all my workflow only to find out the following:

I use Capture NX2 to save TIFF images out of the RAW and then I open them on PS (CS6).
The original RAWs all have the tag in them. I checked with Photoshop and Bridge that they are there.

If I open the file with Capture and save it to two different files:
One TIFF and a second one Jpeg, both of them will continue to show the tag with the Lens type (again, checked with Bridge and PS).

But here comes the tricky part: if I open these files with photoshop and SAVE AS jpeg (in the same way), the one that originated from a TIFF will strip the "" tag on the final picture, while the one that originated from a jpeg will not.

There seems to be a problem on how Photoshop interprets the Exif info while saving from an original TIFF file.

I've noticed the same issue, but it also strips it from the TIFF when saved as a TIFF with just the Save Command. I have not been able to find much information on this issue.
