Test driving it today with the intent to buy the GFX50s and i'm unable to unleash it's full potential as currently nobody supports it's RAW capabilities. Could you give us an indication of when this will be possible with LIGHTROOM.
Come on Adobe get this sorted we have already shot three advertising campaigns with this new camera since taking delivery on Friday and struggling to process our files in Lightroom - others already support this RAW format should we just change and drop Adobe Lightroom altogether?
It takes time for Adobe to add support for each new camera. You only received delivery on it last Friday. You are being a little unrealistic with your demands. If Adobe acquired images in time, you could expect support in the upcoming update for Lightroom and Camera Raw. If not, then it will be necessary for you to wait for the next update. Brand-new technology requires time for software to catch up. I know you not like that. I understand that you are a professional. But you should understand the process by now.
Not at all unrealistic IMHO Jim
If dinky little companies like ON1 can support this format from day one then Adobe who have had 10s of thousands of pounds out of us over the years can make a bigger effort.
We might have received the camera last Friday but pre production cameras and info have been available to the industry for a long time now.
Adobe has a relatively fixed release schedule of every 3 months. The camera may have been supported, internally, for weeks or months, already, but you won’t see it until the release is public. ON1, being a much smaller company (so you say) may have a quicker release schedule, or is using someone else’s raw-processing library that has no release schedule other than as quick as possible.
Think of ON1’s software release schedule as preparing for a backyard barbeque with a few friends or neighbors, whereas Adobe’s release schedule is like catering a celebrity’s wedding. There is more to lose with Adobe as a publicly-traded company with a billion-dollar market cap so, yeah, they are more careful or at least more methodical and formal about their releases, as they have more to lose.
others already support this RAW format
Out of interest, can you advise who?
None of the other major Raw software editors such as Capture One Pro, ON1 Photo Raw, ACDSee Ultimate or DxO OpticsPro support it yet.
ON1 Photo RAW do support it John that is what we have been using.
Also annoyed that the Fuji GFX 50s Raw files arent supported by Adobe yet. I cant use it for any commercial job. Ive just tried ON1 Camera Raw and it doesnt look like it officially support the new Raw files, some dead pixels, bad quality processing very slow etc
would be nice to get an idea how long it will take for them ro release an update, Adobe please answer the original poster,
Still doesn't work.
LR camera 9 and no update possible on adobe air. ...
(Camera raw is ok 9.9.)
What doesn't work? Are you not able to update to the latest update? Lightroom has progressed beyond what is required to support your camera. The latest update is Lightroom 10.1.1/CC 2015.10.1. Camera Raw has also progressed to version 9.10.1. The screenshot I posted only lists the minimum version required to support your camera.

Can you confirm the version you are running?
The reason I ask is that there is a nasty bug in the Lightroom updater. When updating to 6.12 (or CC 2015.12) the updater sometimes encounters an error and reverts you back to 6.0 (or CC 2015.0) but says the update was successful. The Cloud desktop app also reports that Lightroom is up-to-date when it's not.
In Lightroom, click Help > System Info. Which Lightroom version is shown? (First line in the white box)
