No 5D Mark III Support in LR4?
« on: March 06, 2012, 06:47:21 PM »
I noticed the 1DX, D4, and D800/E on the list of supported cameras in the new Lightroom 4. However, the 5D MkIII was left out. I guess we'll be waiting 3 months for the next update. IMO they should release a minor update immediately when there is a major camera release. I'm sure they are granted pre-production models to use for software development. Most of my post processing is done in Lightroom, and it's a big inconvenience to have to wait 2 months before I can import RAW files directly (Assuming the 5D ships at the end of March).

The announcement of the 5d Mark III is not the same as the release of the Mark III.  Why does Adobe need to be supporting a camera not available on the commercial market?  Give them a few weeks.
Gear! When do we get gear?!

Not that I totally disagree with you, but the 1DX hasn't been released either and it's supported by LR4.

The camera was not even announced yet to the public when LR4 went RTM.

Both the 1dx and the d4 along with the d800/e were announced.

It will be updated shortly.

I'm just saying... they seem to stick to a 3 month update cycle regardless of what is released in the meantime. Nikon 1 users had to wait awhile for them to add RAW support too.

5D III RAW file (in sRAW size) was easily imported by Lightroom 4 and I didn't noticed any incompatibilities.

you are likely seeing  the jpeg embedded in the raw file, LR4 cannot open raw yet.
 
However, Adobe has both a beta Camera Raw and a beta dng that will let you convert them to view and edit in lightroom.  go to the Adobe labs site and get the betas.  We will probably see a beta lr4 soon.

Not sure if this is true. How can we check this?
