Thanks for the test image. That's strange. The lens information is different in 
the Exif and Makernotes.
In the Makernotes CanonCs, digiKam finds the wrong type with F4. But it gets 
even better, ExifTool even recognizes a completely different lens in the 
Makernotes: "LensType : Canon RF 50mm F1.2L USM or other Canon RF Lens.
Is the firmware of your camera and/or lens up to date?
We can change the order of metadata when detecting the lens for Canon. I'll 
have to check the bug report, I think we've had a similar problem before.
