It is 10.3 that supports your brand new camera.
Download it for Windows here: Adobe - Adobe Camera Raw and DNG Converter : For Windows : Adobe DNG Converter 10.3
Thanks so much! I did not see 10.3 on Adobe site, though I saw a reference to it. Only got it by your link. Also confusing, is details on 10.2 said A7iii supported. Anyway, thanks again!!!

Where is the incorrect information about ACR 10.2 supporting A7 III? The info with the DNGC 10.2 doesn't list any Sony cameras as newly supported:
The A7R III has been supported since ACR 10.1 and that camera would be supported with 10.2 so would be included in an exhaustive list of supported cameras for 10.2, but the R indicates a distinct model. separate from the models without the R.
If the information you saw was in a forum post by users such as you or I, then there may have been some crossover between discussions of the A7R III and A7 III with both being mentioned in the same thread, but that would be users being careless, not Adobe give incorrect official information.
Perhaps the Adobe home page is not the correct place to find the current DNG Converter. I went to www.adobe.com and not seeing DNG Converter anywhere, I used the search on the home page and found what I believed was the current version of the converter, 10.2. That was the only one displayed. Off to the right side on the page there was a link to cameras supported, and Sony A7iii was listed. I assumed that list pertained to the only version, 10.2. Since 10.2 didn't convert the files, i did a google search, and saw reference to 10.3, but didn't know where to get it.
Thanks again for your assistance.
You are correct that the quick-results choice from DNG Converter leads to 10.2 at the moment, probably due to it being longer on the site than 10.3, or perhaps some quirk of how many people searched for it when it was the current version, although if you'd've clicked on the first item "Digital Negative (DNG) format" and scrolled down past the technical information, the links to the current software are on that page, however it is understandable you clicked on the search results that matched your computer:
Unfortunately, all you had to do was click on the breadcrumbs at the top of the page and the full list of DNG Converters would have been shown:
But how would you know, right?
One way to get to the DNG Converter from the home page is:
At the top of the home page there are some menu items:
And at the top of that page are product updates:
Leading to a page that has links to updates of most Adobe software:
Wow, thanks for the info. I'm an IT pro of 35 years and didn't think of those options. I wouldn't have clicked on Digital Negative Format because I'd only expect a discussion of the format.
Anyway, thanks again

I am a Nikon user but seriously considering the switch to Sony with the A7iii. A question I have is how well does the Sony RAW 14 bit uncompressed format convert to DNG? Also what is the file size? Nikon uses a lossless compression will Sony is only uncompressed. Really surprised by that. However, I am not sure what the dng file size will be for the Sony RAW format. Not sure if its 1:1 or if the DNG will do a lossless compression.
My suggestion is to go to a camera store with your own card, take some samples and try them on your computer system. In the end, it is what the image looks like, not the file size, compression algorithms or storage space.
You can also find RAW image files to download on dpreview.com that you can process in Lightroom.
