As the title states I will be renting a 5d mrk III for an upcoming dance recital. Before I drop 3k to upgrade from my 7d I want to make sure it will perform like I believe it will. My question now becomes one of post production. Will my LR 4 and photoshop elements 11 support the 5d mrk III files or will I need to upgrade to LR 5 and a newer more advanced PS? I had a friend upgrade to a full frame Nikon and his LR and PS version didn't work. He had to buy the latest version of LR and photoshop. Thanks in advance. BTW..I will be shooting RAW.

Yes, LR4 will handle 5DIII RAW files. As for Elements it won't be an issue as (I assume) you won't be using it to process RAWs, only for any extra edits which will be TIFF or PSD files.

Gear Canon 5DIII + Fuji X-T2 + lenses + a plastic widget I found in the camera box.

Fwiw, you don't need to buy the latest software to open raw files from the newest cameras. Adobe DNG Converter will open and convert the files to the dng format. This is a "universal" format that can be opened by older software.

I've never heard of a jpg not being compatible.

No need to convert to DNG. LR4 and PSE11 will support raw files from the markiii.
