I purchased the new sony RX100 5 but the new raw files are not supported yet. I was wondering how long it normally takes for adobe to update LR so I can work with the files?
Updates are released approximately every three months. But there is no set time frame. Take note that you will have to have Lightroom 6 or Lightroom CC 2015 in order to get an update that will support that camera. Otherwise, you will have to use DNG converter once it has been updated to support that model.
Updates for LR CC 2015 have been released much more frequently, on average every 52 days, suggesting 2015.8 might be due any day now: Timing of Lightroom releases . In the past, 79% of new Sonys were supported by the first release of LR following the official announcement, so there's a reasonable likelihood that the next release of LR will support the RX 100 Mark V.
