I'm the proud owner of Lightroom 5.7. I'm also the proud owner of a Canon 5dMk3 and, recently, a Canon 5dsr.
Raw images from the Mk3 have no issues being imported into Lightroom 5.7.
Initially I had no issues importing Raw images from the 5dsr UNTIL I changed the file format on the camera to just Raw (CR2) rather than Raw + Jpeg. Then I found the file format wasn't supported in 5.7.
Which Lightroom supports the Raw file format from the 5dsr and how come I could import Raw images initially but then I couldn't (weird)?
Do I have to move to Lightroom 6? Can I upgrade to Lightroom 6? I really would prefer not to use CC.
Any help/suggestions would be gratefully recived. I'm on the forum because when I searched it appears that LR6 still presents some issues.
The Canon 5DSR was first supported in Lightroom 6.0

You were only importing JPGs initially. Now that you've changed to Raw only, you cannot import at all because 5.7 cannot read the 5DSR Raw files.
To open the Raw files, you must upgrade to version 6: Cloud or non-Cloud.
If you don't want CC (Cloud) then follow these steps to buy the upgrade to version 6
A free alternative is to stay with version 5.7 and convert your 5DSR Raw files to DNG format. Then import the DNG files into 5.7 and edit them.
