Just wonder if standalone Lightroom version 6.0 will be able to import and read the Canon 80D CR2 files?

I tried to update Lightroom but only version available for download is the Lightroom CC (2015.8) / 6.8. I dont know what update I actually get when I click update. Do I get standalone version 6.8 or do I have to sign up to the CC version and pay every month? I only want to use the perpetual licence.

Great, thanks!

I dont know why you refer to that link. I already have the perpetual licence installed and that is the version 6.0. For updates I have to go "help" in menu and check for updates. There is the option I meantion in my post above. I was affraid that with the update Adobe wants to transform my perpetual licence to a payed plan. Not interested about that.

crbinson: Do you use the LR 6.0 version with 80D?

Looks like I need 6.5 for 80D raw-file support. Then I also need to update my OSX.

Sorry didn't understand you already had LR6 installed. I was using LR5 until recently when I purchased the 80D. I chose to upgrade to LR6 to support the raw files. Since it was just recently when I upgraded, the version that was downloaded and installed was LR6.8

I dont understand Adobe support. There are two software involved. Lightroom and Camera Raw. Is it possible to updated only the Camera Raw software to fully support the 80D files?

Camera Raw is a plug-in hosted by Photoshop CC. If you don't have a subscription to Photoshop CC you can't use the plug-in. (Plug-ins are partial applications that need to be used inside a larger application.) Every edition of Lightroom has a built-in and integral version of Camera Raw which cannot be changed other than by changing the entire application.

I already have the perpetual licence installed and that is the version 6.0. For updates I have to go "help" in menu and check for updates. There is the option I meantion in my post above. I was affraid that with the update Adobe wants to transform my perpetual licence to a payed plan. Not interested about that.

Really? Do you think that Adobe could legally sign you up for a rental plan without your indicating and confirming your agreement and supplying a credit card number? Or do you think a couple guys with bent noses and baseball bats will show up at your door tomorrow to collect the monthly $10 dollars? If you purchased LR 6.0, the price you paid included free updates for the life of LR 6. Updates which contain new camera model support and new lens correction profiles, as well as bug fixes. There have been more than 8 updates.

The update patches for the standalone version and the subscription version are exactly the same; the way in which the update is implemented is determined by whether your LR has been serialized with a valid perpetual license number or you have signed up to a subscription plan. Subscribers receive new features, standalone purchasers do not. Go here and download the update:

I use LR5.7 for raw files from my 80D. DNG conversion takes seconds and is easily automated. No way I'd pay for LR6.whatever just to get raw support I can get for nothing.

But the OP has already purchased and installed LR 6.0. The 80D was supported from 6.5. The update is free. When I was in the army (nearly 60 years ago) we used to say, "If it's free, take it", but if Adobe is involved this isn't always the best advice - some recent updates to LR6 have been somewhat less than wonderful. Nevertheless, Adobe does eventually correct their worst blunders and I can testify that LR 6.8 works well. Don't you think that simply updating and taking what you have in a sense already paid for is preferable to converting every file to DNG?

Tzalman: Sorry to hear about your hard time in the army. Keep your harsh and uncivil tone for your self.

Bassat: will try the Adobe DNG Converter. I only have Mac OSX 10.8 installed. Lightroom 6.5 and up needs higher Mac OS and I dont want to upgrade. Unfortunatly the 10.8 is the last Mac OS supporting real black point compensation for ColorNavigator and Eizo monitors.

I think tzalman posts were on point, not childish and answered your questions well. I think you did not get the answer you wanted and therefore dismiss his point of view and valid advice.
