Please would you add camera RAW .rw2 support for the Panasonic G3 in Lightroom, Camera Raw and DNG, and Photoshop Elements? I find it utterly bizarre that Panasonic are giving away copies of Lightroom with purchases of the G3 as a promotion at present, yet the software does not recognise the camera...!?

Support for the G3 is currently available in the Lightroom 3.5 and Adobe Camera Raw 6.5 Release Candidates.

PSE cannot be updated with the ACR RC but release candidates of LR and DNGC should work.

Thank you both for responding. I have downloaded the Ligthroom 3.5 Release Candidate, and this does, indeed, recognise the .rw2 raw files from my G3. What a relief! It has been driving me nuts for the last month to have this great new camera, which I am delighted with, but to have lost the ability to work in RAW...

Thanks again, Jay

I purchased Elements 10 the other day. I have a G3 too. Elements doesn`t recognize the RW2files..Any idea what to do?
