I've got the Lightroom 5 version and I am absolutely happy with it, BUT I can't import any RAW files taken with my Canon EOS750d.

Do I really need to buy the Lightroom 6 version only to work with RAW files?

Kind regards,

No, you don't really need to buy Lightroom 6 if that is an issue for you. The alternative is to download the free DNG converter from Adobe  and use it to convert your CR2 files to the DNG format. Then you can open those DNG files with your Lightroom 5. If it is important to you to work on your original CR2 files then it will be necessary for you to upgrade to Lightroom 6.
