50D and RAW software support

Let's make the point at the moment:

  • Breezebrowser (my preferred tool): programmer says 50D is going to be implemented "as soon as possible", but no timeframe yet;

  • Bibble: implementation of 50D not before the release of version 5

  • Photoshop and ACR: supported, but you need to upgrade the software; the version I own (CS2) will never support to 50D

  • Lightroom: supported, but you need to upgrade to version 2.x; the version I own (ver.1) will never support the 50D

  • Capture One : unknown status

So apparently at the moment the only chance to develop 50D's RAWs outside of Canon's DPP (which royally sucks), is to pay for an entire upgrade of either Photoshop or Lightroom.

Am I allowed to say that this situation sucks big time?

It's more or less one month that the 50D is commercially available, and the only software that supports it, does by requiring a whole software upgrade. Talk about greed.
