I was worried that it wouldn't work with CR3 files (eos R) as Luminar 3 did not recognize my files. thankfully Luminar 4 does! Hope this info helps someone.

Lots of reports of crashes on the Luminar forums. I got fed up with Luminar 3 being so slow and not supporting CR3 files. I suppose at least 4 now supports CR3 files but can't see myself bothering with it. Luminar promise so much with their marketing but the reality doesn't match up to the hype.
