I used 2 canon 5dlll cameras and want to filter the images from each camera separately but my Lightroom classic CC 7.3 only appears to list the Model: Canon EOS 5D Mark lll but not the serial number. How can I get the serial numbers of both 5D3 camera to be displayed? I'm sure they used to be listed on earlier versions of LR. Thanks!

You need to change the Metadata Set to show either EXIF or EXIF & IPTC, then the serial number will be displayed.

However, a better method would be to use the Library filter, as Camera Serial Number is one of the filter categories.
