Mines working great with 5d3 on my MacBook pro. I've not done much editing, but I get previews before importing and the best part is they actually import now. I'm running the newest update of lion on my puter.

That's a big negative...you will have to go the LR4 with the RC1 or RC2 update. Kind of a pain. I was totally fine with LR3.

Damn... More hidden fees...LOL.

Well, one more thing to be aware of and that's that LR4 will not support Windows XP. So, that can be another reason to use the DNG converter with 5D3 files!

With Win 8 already in pubic beta....Win XP uses need a plan to move on....regardless of the question about which LR version to use. I tried Win 8....and was so impressed....I converted my desktop to a Hackintosh. It runs OS 10.7.3 Lion just fine.

I think LR4 is still using RC2 -- nothing shows up if you do a Check for Updates. But the RC updates do support the 5D3.

I'm not sure what you are referring to about ACR -- are you talking about something for the CS6 Beta/ACR7? I haven't heard of anything, you still need the CS5 ACR with the update for that to get 5D3 support.

Is it just me or anyone else out there finding that the LR4.1 RC2 is very slow rendering 5D3 RAW?

Slow compared to what? Lightroom does a lot "under the hood", but you also have to realize that 5D3 files are the biggest Raw files Canon cameras put out, so they will be "slow" comparatively.

Have you followed the suggestions that have been put out here and in various places to "optimize" the perforance of Lightroom? I'm on a laptop right now and don't have anything bookmarked, but in particular links have been given to LightroomQueen.com where Victoria Bampton has given some good detailed advice on speeding up Lightroom in your system. Maybe someone can toss out a links, or Google can help you if you search for things like "lightroom speed", "optimize lightroom" and such, especially keeping your eye out for a LightroomQueen link.

'Course you could try alternatives for "quick work" such as the Canon software Digital Photo Professional (DPP).

Thanks for the info, very helpful.

I was comparing to 5D Mark II raw rendering, especially when it renders the 1:1 view, 5D3 RAW takes almost twice as long as the 5D2 RAW rendering.

I will try to apply some of the optimizations to see what happens.

Yeah, I'd check the optimization options out!

As to why a 5D3 file would take twice as long as a 5D2 file, that is strange, since they are about the same resolution. Yes, the 5D3 has some new features, but the data on those are in the "Maker's Notes", not in the Raw data itself, so I wouldn't think that they would slow things down.

Have you gone to the Adobe Forum to ask about this and maybe log a "bug report"?
