I use Canon 550D and assorted Canon lenses. In LR3.0 on XP subject distance was displayed in the metadata panel.

Using LR 3.4.1 on W7 64bit this data is not displayed.

For clarity - the same RAW image imported into the 2 versions displays subject distance in early version and does not display in later version.

Valuable info lost to me, be nice to have it back.

AFAIK, this was deliberately remove somewhere after 3.0, I believe because it was not cosistant or accurate enough.

Hi Pete,

Beat is correct. This metadata information was not reliably accurate, and we removed its display from Lightroom at the request of camera manufacturers.

Thanks,
Ben
