Default Search for lens: Is it possbile?

Hi,

I have a question:

I would like to search for photos that have been taken with specific lenses. Is there a way to search for lenses?
At the moment I have a little workaround where I add the particular lens to my equipment profile, add temporarly to one of my photos, to be able to click on that link. But it is not really comofortable...

Maybe this would be a nice new feature for TrekEarth...(if it is not already avaible but I am just to stupid to find it)

Thanks for any advice!

Cheers,
-Kev

The existing solution is the following:
- click on Gallery in the Main Menu
- click on Categories (in sub-menu)
- click on Equipement (in sub-menu)
- click on Lenses (in sub-menu)

This will provide a list of all lenses from which you can (in theory) select a lense and click on the link to display corresponding photos. The problem is that the TE database is not standardized, so it will probably be very time consuming to scroll down to find the lens you're looking for.

A faster solution would be to use Google and enter "site:www.trekearth.com canon 10-22mm" for example if you're searching for photos taken with a canon 10-22mm lens.

Hope this helps.
Bibi

ah..thanks. Didn't know that one.
Still a bit painful but much better than my solution ;-)
Thanks a lot!
