Just got the new Canon 5D MkIII and none of the Adobe products can recognize the raw files (called .CR2) it generates.
I'd be happy just converting them to .DNG but converters won't recognize them either.
Anyone know a solution for me?
As of today, the raw converter still doesn't work with MkIII files, (v 22.214.171.1241).
The Release Candidate 6.7 converter does work with the 5D Mk III and as stated LR 4.1 RC also works:
Not sure if you're replying to me, Faster, but re: the DNG converter, 126.96.36.1991 definitely works on 5D Mk III files, as does ACR 6.7 RC and Lr 4.1 RC - I've tried them all.
The fact that "someone" on the LuLa forum is a having a problem (although I'm not sure from your post what with) doesn't really change that - if you look hard enough, you'll find somebody, somewhere, having a problem with everything.
Okay, I just can't get it to work for me. I have deleted the copy I had and downloaded the 'latest' version again, re-installed and I still have a problem. I can convert my MkII files no problem, but it just doesn't see the MkIII files, i.e. they don't even show up in the folder. If I go to the 'Adobe DNG Conveter.exe' file location in \Program Files ((x86)\ I can see the 'exe' file, but it has a date of 1/12/11, which doesn't seem right. Its the only copy on my hard drive. Don't know. I'll just wait for the update.
Support for the EOS 5D Mark III was added to Lightroom with the 4.1 update:
