M: RAW Support for Nikon Z5 with 3rd Party Glass

I am finding an issue importing Nikon Z5 RAW files into Lightroom & Photoshop...Adobe's DNG converter also does not work for these files.  However, if RAW images are shot with Nikon lenses (either Z-mount native or adapted with FTZ adapter), all of these software programs can import just fine.  Will there be an update to allow the import of RAW images shot on 3rd Party Glass?  For reference, I was using the Tamron 24-70 2.8 G2.  NOTE: when using my Nikon 20mm 1.8g lens, all files imported as expected.

I am having this same problem. I used the Sigma Art 85 1.4 while shooting RAW and I am receiving an import error. I would like to know if there is a fix coming rather quickly because the photographs were of a wedding and these images need to be delivered.

I'm thinking it's a firmware problem with Nikon.

After going back and forth with support for several dayd, they said it could very well be 2-3 months for an update. I also have a wedding I need to get delivered. Abode is blaming Nikon, while Nikon is blaming Adobe.

I would never do a shoot for anyone, especially a wedding, without testing the equipment and practicing a lot with it first.  Hard to blame Nikon or Adobe for not delivering photos in this situation.

Your input (comment) is not helpful.. it must be wonderful to be perfect.. people are just hoping for a solution and don't need your condescending remarks.. 

If you can't say anything constructive ( nice ) it's best not to say anything at all..

I'm sorry if you were offended.  Let me put it another way -- it's best to practice with new equipment, including your photo processing workflow, before you take any important pictures.  If you're like me, the first pictures out of a new camera are not going to be very good because there is a lot to learn -- especially if you're transitioning from DSLR to Mirrorless as the AF works differently.  I beleive the solution to this situation on importing photos was already posted -- use Nikon's software until Adobe get's things sorted out.  Go ahead and be offended, but as a photographer taking once in a lifetime pictures of a wedding that the bride is counting on, it's your responsbility to make sure everything goes smooth.

While you comment is noted and understandable, in the notes for the last update for Lightroom it stated that support for the Z5 was being added before the camera even released to the public. No caveats were mentioned about 1st party lens support only. This is an oversight by both/either Adobe and Nikon. We can't be asked to stress testers and shoot with all of  our glass just to verify something that Adobe themselves said was already (and should have been) supported.

Clearly Nikon dropped the ball in making sure the Z5 was enabled and tested by Adobe. I'm not deflecting that responsibility from Nikon as part of their new product development process.  What I was speaking to is the responsibility of the photographer going into a shoot as important as a wedding, or any paid shot for that matter.  The photographer should be making sure his/her equipment is ready, batteries are charged, etc.  This issue is a good reminder of the importance in trying everything out first when new gear is involved so you can find a fix or have alternate plans beforehand.

That's right. I've spent over two years migrating from Nikon DSLR to Sony mirrorless. The decision was made a long time ago, but it took that long because I needed to have proven reliable equipment on hand at all times. I used the Nikons for all important jobs until very recently.

 

There are no excuses for malfunctioning equipment. It happens, and it needs to be adressed in advance. It's the photographer's responsibility to make sure it all works.

Scroll down, we posted a temporary workaround. No need to jump ship just yet. Also Adobe is putting out a patch. They posted an update on the photoshop forum last week about them isolating a possible issue for a fix. Stay tuned.
