It would be really great if you could see the Exposure Mode (P,A,S,M) that was used to take a photo, in the LR metadata panel. I was really surprised when I found out that such a basic thing wasn't possible!

The Exif standard says that the ExposureProgram tag (tag number 34850) stores a number (ex: 2) not a string (ex: "Program AE"). Lightroom displays a string based on the descriptions of the numbers defined in the Exif specification.
