I use several cameras with different format sensors (FF, APS-C, m43, and 1") and would like to see if there is a way to search by meta-data on angle of view instead of say 50 mm (which would be a telephoto in m43).

My ultimate goal is to find which angle of view I typically wind up with when shooting, after selecting images. Some will be on prime lenses, other particular zoom settings.

I think the term is Field of View which is expressed in degrees. This information which is available in the Maker’s Notes field IF it is available is not a field that Lightroom Classic will parse.
