I just took samples using a Canon 24-105L with my 1D2 and in both DPP and LR2 it shows in lens info only as 24-105mm. Before it used to say EF24-105mmf/4L IS USM on my 40D. Just wondering why?
Is it inherent to the body? My 17-40L on my 30D still shows EF17-40mmf/4L USM.

It's simply down to the way that the body adds the data to the file. The lens (24-105 in your case) has a specific id which is recognised by the body and then decoded. The 24-105 is Canon id #237 but different bodies may well have a slightly different text string to tie up with it.....maybe later bodies are more specific because there is more memory available to allocate to the look up table.

It's weird cause if I use a 3rd party exif viewer, it gives the lens type as Canon EF 24-105mm f/4L IS. I just thought metadata would be the same if the info is available.

I just realized it's the same with my 70-200L and 1D2. It must be the body.
