just d'loaded the latest Adobe .DNG converter. Made .DNG's from Canon RAWS and from Sony RAWS. LR 1.1 sees Canon .DNG's but not Sony .DNG's. I thought .DNG's should be recognized by all versions of LR. I also am renting the latest version of LR from Creative Cloud and it sees the Sony .DNG's just fine. I'm confused because I thought the .DNG file was a "wrapper" that made all camera raws compatible... am I mistaken?
And what compatibility option did you have set in the DNG Converter?
I’m sure an ancient LR 1.1 version doesn’t understand the lens-correction op-codes from the Sony, and probably needs the oldest compatibility settings. Of course that’ll preclude having your lens distortion corrected in a newer version of LR. So you really should just use the latest version of LR and not worry about the DNG Converter.
