Your estimate will be about as accurate as anyone else's. Adobe never announces that information in advance. The last ACR update was about a month ago and updates historically are released about every three months.
I would agree, but somehow, I remember that fairly quickly after the Nikon D7100's release, the RAW update for it was made available - at least I think it was for that camera.
Oh, well. I'll shoot both .NEF & .jpg and view the latter in PS now, keeping the RAW image for later.
Thanks for the response, Jim.
It was just pointed out to me in another thread that Eric Chan has indicated there will be something very soon. That would indicate that there might be a release candidate shortly that will have support for the camera. That's all I know, as there were no other details. So it looks like maybe within the next week or so you might have something to work with. But that's only a guess. My crystal ball is sort of cloudy today.
just try to edit the camera id directly in .NEF w/ a hex editor - chances are that it is still the same profile as for D600... just less oil to account for
Eric’s reply of “very soon” was in response to my guesstimate comment, yesterday, of late-Dec for the LR 5.3 release with a release-candidate prior, based on the historical schedule of 3+ months between LR releases and LR 5.2 came out Sept 17th.
The obvious link is that LR and ACR are updated about the same time to keep LR and PS-ACR fully compatible.
I wonder if there will be multiple RCs per version, now, to get cameras added quicker, or if the many-small-updates-for-CC mentality has taken hold so there will be smaller, more frequent updates than 4 times per year.
