Did Canon change the format of the cr2 file? Is this typical when a new body comes out? I took some shot with my friend's new 5DmkIII but my old Lightroom2 (v2.7 ACR v5.7) won't open the cr2 files. LR4 is already on my list of things to buy. Does it support the 5DmkIII?

On the positive side, a shot a few jpgs too and the exif pane in Lightroom correctly shows the camera model and now reports the subject distance. I can't believe how clean the ISO12800 shots look either.

Also, the file names are in the format K97Cxxxx rather than IMG_xxxx. Is this a new naming convention Canon uses now or just a user preference. My friend really hadn't explored the camera much yet.

Every version of body, requires an update for your editing program. Nothing new here.

Hopefully it won't take very long, depending on your editing platform choice.

LR4 does not support the 5dIII yet, but the update for it's support should be coming soon. LR@ or Lr3 will not be able to support it so you will need LR4.


6D, 5D, 7D, Eos R and too many lenses, flashes and aux. gear to list!:cool:

You can customize the first 4 characters in the file name. By default they are randomized on each camera.

Does anyone know for sure that LR3 will not support the new CR2 format from the 5D MK III?

I'm still on Windows XP and I think I understand that LR4 will never be available for Win XP.

So, to open CR2 from 5d MK III, I will need LR4 but to use LR 4 I will need Win 7 but to run Win 7 I will need a new computer?

Get DNG Converter 6.7 and convert the RAW files to DNG.

In the past, Adobe has not supported new cameras on previous versions of their software, so it's a safe bet that you'll need LR4.

Not necessarily. If you're satisfied with LR performance on your computer, Win7 will run on it just fine.

Although if you bought your computer around WinXP release time frame, it's not a bad idea to look at the upgrade, after all, it'll be peanuts comparing to $3.5K you just dropped on 5D3. (You should have no problem finding decent computer for like $300, which will be lightyears ahead of anything you could've bought in 2002 :)).

Technically I believe 5D3 was announced before LR4 has been released :-P

I don't think it matters, LR4 is the current product, LR3 is a previous version.

i've seen some grumbling on the other boards that adobe will not support 5d3 on LR3, so i'll believe it when i see it. good thing is that adobe did lower the price of LR4

I downloaded the Adobe DNG converter 6.7, converted some shots from my friend's 5DIII, and imported those DNGs into LR2. It looks like ISO 12800 is cleaner than ISO 3200 (max) on my 5D, but ISO 25600 looks REALLY noisy. I know LR4 has much better noise reduction than my LR2, but did the import route I took have anything to do with it? Can I expect better noise reduction when working directly with a supported CR2 file (when that happens) vs a DNG?

My initial impression is that the MkIII lets the user push farther into noiseland than the 5D does. I didn't even get a chance to shoot higher than ISO 25600 since I couldn't find the function to unlock it.
