K70 and LR4


I have a K5 and the DNG files works perfectly with LR4. I plan to get a k70, but will I need to get a newer LR or will it work just as transparently? I other words is the new cameras DNG files the same as he old ones? To get a subscription in our currency will be just too much and if I have to I will buy a standalone LR6, but LR4 is still very fine with me.

I think it should work fine.

I'm sure someone else will be able to tell for sure.

Since you are using DNG-files you can load them and edit them in Lightroom 4.4 as before.
But you will be missing the camera-profiles.
You can install them manually from the newest Cameraraw though. This involves some copy and paste, google for more details .

I am running LR 4.4 with my K-1 with no issues.

PS: If you copy the new camera-profiles, be sure to also copy all the new lens-profiles.
