LR 4.3 is available now. After installing it inside my MacBookPro, I can see as usual the beautifull support of Canon/Nikon cameras and still nothing for Olympus Sony or Fuji and others.
I can say that Lightroom is "dedicated" for Canon/nikon.
My DSLRs are sold and I am now making photographies with one Olympus EM-5, after making many personnal tests with E-M5 Fuji X-E1 and Nex-7.
The Jpeg out of the camera are beautifull. The Raw files with Lightroom 4.2 or 4.3 are really bad, incredibly bad!
I am sure that Adobe ingenieers, were using the old RAW converter subroutines inside camera RAW for E-system or PEN and just replace PEN E-P3 by E-M5 inside the code. They don't know that E-M5 is not using the old sensor manufactured by Panasonic but a new sensor with new capabilities, new colors, new dynamic developped and manfacurered by Sony.

Many answers in that topic, says that it's easy to make the profiles yourself. OK if it is so easy and fast why adobe is not making the things for all mirrorless. cameras?
We are paying the same money for LR4 as Canon/nikon users. Even it is fast and easy to create color profile, I am sure that I can't make myself a specific subroutine inside camera Raw converter to give a clean support for E-M5 nor X-E1. Ny 2nd camera will be Fuji X-E1 in a near future.

I will never return to the old and heavy Canon/Nikon DSLR. I am sure of that . I have know to decide to continue using LR or not?
If I am only using a small part of LR, just to manage my files may be I can find an other product at a lower price, a faster one using less ressources.

I am LR user since the early beginning
