I need to get that tether to work for the R5
No one here knows when. The only way we find out is when Adobe makes an announcement. That's how you will find out as well.
Updates of Lightroom and Camera Raw usually go together. ACR was updated yesterday, so it is reasonable to expect a Lightroom update soon.
i hope so! becuz it didnt happen together this time... not sure why they dont tell you when it will be updated
There is nothing certain for you to absolutely expect that there will be tethered support for that camera. It's possible that it will be added, but not a certainty. Every model is not supported for tethered shooting. So it is a feature that you will just have to wait and see if it is added for you.
Being a need for professionals and it being a professional camera it stands to reason. I believe they do have the data needed from Canon back mid summer. I really do not want to go to C1. but they are pushing me.
