There is something not clear. If I'm looking into my Nikon-D800 images there is a lot of EXIF information stored, in NEFs and also in JPGs.
Even when I use a manual old lens and set it's aperture and focal length this is written into the EXIF datas.
The files You have uploaded have nothing in EXIF, so if this are the original files there must going something wrong while importing or converting.
I use Nikon's ViewNX/Transfer for importing Nikon-files. Perhaps your SW "Digital Images" kills all the EXIF information?
I use this app - it´s part of the OS - only for transferring the files from the card to the desktop.
I do it this way for years - since i bought my first 20D in 2004.
The lens is identified as 20mm - the aperture of THIS lens isn´t in the EXIFs because i unmounted the AI-ring twenty years ago so
it´s not coupled, but works fine.
But this has no influence on this issue.
I used the SAME IMAGES in PTGui and everything worked fine (i stated it several times here).
I imported the images into Photoshop: no problem. Into CaptureOne: no problem.
I always set my cameras to record as few EXIFs as possible. That´s because i use some rather exotic programs for ColorKeying (Greenscreen/Bluescreen),
Nuke, AfterEffects, Trapcode, Smoke and others.
Some video-applications don´t like EXIfs from photo-cameras.
I don´t think it´s the app which i use for copying the files from the card to the desktop. It doesn´t change anything in the image-files.
P.S.: when i open the files in Lightroom or CaptureOne i see almost the same kind of EXIFs as you posted as screenshot.
