For a complete overview of camera support in Photoshop and Lightroom, visit the following article:

Why doesn't my version of Photoshop or Lightroom support my camera?

  1. Make sure your version of Photoshop or Lightroom is updated for the latest camera support.
  2. If you own an older version of Photoshop or Lightroom, Adobe provides backward compatibility for the latest cameras through the FREE Adobe DNG Converter.

 

Note: ETAs for specific cameras are not available

No one here knows. We don't know. Adobe never tells us when.

 

When Adobe gets all the work completed to successfully use raw photos from this camera, they will release a new version of the software. Then we will all find out at the same time.

Until Adobe release supported versions of Lightroom-Classic and ACR, you will need to edit with Canon's DPP App (Digital Photo Professional), and export to TIF or JPG.  DPP lists the R5c as supported.

No. Nobody can tell you this because they either do not know, or they are not allowed to tell you because of their NDA. I understand your impatience, but you will simply have to wait.

No one can say (except for some Adobe employees, who are not allowed to say). You should check the list here each time Adobe updates the Lighroom Classic software.

I think the support of the new Sony camera is planned and comes with one of the next updates.

But Adobe gives us never informations about release dates.

 

So right now your choice would be work with the Sony software to convert your RAW files into DNG.

This DNG files you can be used for further work in CameraRAW and Photoshop.

My System: Intel i7-8700K - 64GB RAM - NVidia Geforce RTX 3060 - Windows 10 Pro 22H2 -- LR-Classic 13.2 - Photoshop 25.5 - Nik Collection 6.8 - Topaz Photo AI 2

I don't think Imaging Edge desktop can export to DNG. Best option I found was exporting to tiff

See: 
https://helpx.adobe.com/camera-raw/kb/camera-raw-plug-supported-cameras.html
https://helpx.adobe.com/camera-raw/kb/why-is-my-camera-not-supported.html

IF your camera is so new, it isn't listed here; nothing you can do for the time being. 
Every time Canon (or Nikon, or Sony, etc) release a new camera, they do this stupid trick of making yet a new proprietary raw file that everyone outside the company, including Adobe, needs access to so they can 'hack' the tiny differences to support that new proprietary raw. You, the customer, get to wait and are forced to use the manufacturer's raw converter until this all takes place. It is silly, but that's how it has been for decades. Some companies are faster to do this than others, but the facts are every 3rd party raw converter manufacturer has to go through this silly dance. Complain about this to your camera company. 

As to when you'll see support, no one here that actually knows the release schedule can state this openly here.

Hmm it's working fine to me (on a Mac). Check if it's possible to open one of those in Photoshop. If not.

Try a reboot and/or create a new lightroom catalogue. Make sure it's the 2023 lightroom version.

You can render (process) the raw in Sony's proprietary software and save out as a TIFF then use PS. 

You can wait until support for that new camera arrives in ACR/LR.

You can change the exif datat to make lightroom think its an older model. Here is my workaround.

it only works with normal compressed raw, not uncompressed, or lossless compressed. and its not an easy thing to do. Here is my method (for folders) windows computers
1.change exiftool -k.exe to exiftool.exe
2 make sure exiftool is in your username directory (C:\Users\yourname)
3paste this into powershell
exiftool -sonymodelid="ILCE-7RM4" -ext ARW -r 'C:\Users\yourname\folder with files in it
...
4 DONE: BATCH PROCESS ALL FILES IN FOLDER (make sure to have all the punctuation correct)

example from my setup
exiftool -sonymodelid="ILCE-7RM4" -ext ARW -r 'C:\Users\markh\Desktop\R5 test files\R5'

You forgot to mention "backup first", as there is always a risk of corrupting one's raw images.

Support for a new camera from a leading manufacturer typically comes in the LR release following the release of the camera or, less frequently, the second following release.  A new version of LR comes out about every 8 weeks, so we might expect to see LR 12.1 mid-December. (I have no inside information on this, and Adobe never announces such things ahead of time.)
