Adobe camera RAW for K5

Hi all,
Got my K5 earlier today and after taking a few shots in RAW (PEF files) decided to process them in PS Elements 9 but have hit problems. My software doesn't recognise the file and I suppose I need an updated Camera RAW. I have looked at the Adobe site - the latest version is 6.2, which doesn't include the K5. Is this correct and would I have to wait or am I missing something?
Your help will be greatly appreciated.
Cheers.

Try shooting DNG,
The PEF RAW update will likely follow soon enough.

Definitely just shoot DNG. You'll never look back, and you'll never worry about waiting for an Adobe update to support your camera ever again.

On the K20D the PEF files are significantly smaller than the DNG files. Are they the same or close to the same size on the K-5?

Since the K-7 the DNG are now compressed and take about the same space as PEF. This speeds up my LR workflow tremendously (no need for conversion to DNG anymore).

DNG is the best kept secret about Pentax.

It's true that the DNG will allow you to work right away with a new camera but the embedded profile is unfortunately generally not as good as the "Adobe Standard" one.

It's a bit annoying that Adobe doesn't support Pentax more and sooner given that Pentax supports their standard that the big companies choose to ignore. But no, lens recognition, lens profiles and support for new cameras are slow to come...

Hmmm. Looks like I might stay with DNG for a little while and see.
