I'm a happy LR 5 user, however, upgraded my DSLR to EOS 5Ds R. LR 5 does not recognize the raw files. I'm still reluctant to upgrade to Lightroom CC. Can anybody help? Thx
Support was added in Lightroom CC 2015.6 / LR 6. There will be no further updates to LR 5.
There are 2 choices
a. Purchase the upgrade to LR 6 or the CC version.
b. Download the latest Adobe DNG Converter application from Adobe (free) and use the converter to convert the raw files to dng format.
Lr will then be able to work with the DNG files.
See the above link for info about the DNG format.
