The new Search pane in ON1 Photo RAW 2022.1 allows search by lens, as did the old panel. However, you now have to type in the lens name or part thereof. There is no drop-down list of lenses to choose from, as there was previously, which is inconvenient. And there is no name completion functionality. Guessing the exact name of a lens is quite difficult.
Also, my Pentax DFA* 50 mm f/1.4 (Pentax's flagship normal prime) is not even recognised by ON1 and so has no name. How can I search for it uniquely, given that I have many images taken with other lenses at 50 mm? The EXIF of the image files contains "HD PENTAX-D FA* 50mm F1.4 SDM AW" as both Lens ID and Lens Type, so I would hope that I could search by this entry.
