Is there any way to have my raw files from Canon 80D import to Lightroom 5?

Do I need to get Lightroom 6? Is Lightroom 6 the same as CC?

Yes as long as you are happy to use the Adobe DNG Converter, you will need to check which version covers the 80D. This will convert your CR2 files to DNG files which LR 5 can operate on. Personally I this situation I would also archive the CR2 files as well as the DNG's that LR is using.

I ran into the same problem in November, when I got my 80D. My solution:

The .bat file will import from your card, open DNG converter, move .cr2s to a backup directory, open LR for you. Makes the whole process a lot less tedious.

Thank you all.

When doing the conversion, does the DNG file "lose" any information or is it just like a CR2?

It is exactly the same image information as that in the CR2, but in a different container in which the metadata structure conforms to a standard format, which is why older editions of LR can read it. Camera makers make small and often trivial changes in the metadata for each new version of their proprietary Raws.

So the answer to your question is that the image data loses nothing, but there might be some essentially insignificant changes in the metadata, items that LR would probably ignore anyways.

Was able to download version 9.5 to be able to use for the Canon 80D. Thanks.

I was able to convert to DNG and process.

I am contemplating on keeping the CR2, but although if I do it will take more space of my hard drive. Is it necessary to keep the CR2 or is it based on the person?

Also is there a noticeable difference between dng and DNG? Just a curiosity. Thanks.

Drive space is cheap. Keep the cr2 raw files as backups in another folder or drive

There is no difference dng and DNG

There might be minor differences between raw and dng but you can create dng files that store a copy of the original raw file inside. The trade off being larger files.

Another option is to use photoshop (or elements) along with the adobe camera raw utility and import 80d images using the metaraw plugin:
