You won't be able to update CS3 to read the raw files from such a recent camera.

You can either use Adobe's free DNG convertor to make compatible files, or use the software that came with your camera to process the files into TIFFs.

Agreed.

If you wish to continue using CS3 then 'DNG' is the only way to go.

BTW - you will not lose anything at all in terms of the RAW data captured. Smile

Yes.

Checkout Adobe's site for PS version body 'compatibility'.
