It would be nice if imgur exposed the exif information in a photo.

Sorry, but exif data is striped on purpose to keep the anonymity of the uploader. This will not change.
EXIF information is removed from images uploaded to the server. Largely because the images are essentially public in nature and it is not designed to be an alternative to services like Flickr or 500px or SmugMug. :)

Is Exif data removal an all-or-nothing thing? I can definitely see removing anything that reveals identity like "Author" or GPS coordinates, but camera and lens data would be nice to retain for photography-minded people who see a nice photo and ask "I wonder what model camera and lens that was taken with?".

It looks like Windows7 is able to lump all such info of a photo into a group called "Camera" when you do "R-Click > Properties > Details" but I don't know what under-the-hood trickery would be needed by the uploader to sift just that out.

Per Sushubh's point, I get that Imgur is not meant to be an alternative to Flickr, but I got a Pro membership to use it as one nonetheless because I find it's uploading and album navigation controls so vastly superior :)
