YES With Camera Raw Ver 6.7 . go to updates and download it.

NO! You can upgrade CR to V. 6.7 with CS5, which is what I did. Worked fine with the 5D3.

True but limited with old 2010 Process. Only ACR RAW 7.x in CS6 and LR4 support newer, more functional and of course better 2012 Process with quite different interfaces.

That was not the question, "Do I need CS6 to process 5D3 files?" The answer is no. "Do I need CS6 to upgrade to CR6.7?" No, again. If the question had been "Do I need CS6 to support ACR7 and get an improved UI as a result?" then the answer would have been yes.

Similar as "Do I need Adobe to process Canon CR2", the answer is NO as DPP can do and is free, lol.  ACR 7 has a complete new interface and process noticeable better as said by Hans Kruse whose opinion I took seriously as he is a guru of Adobe processing in his fantastic landscape photos, the best I have seen in this forum.  No mention only Adobe ACR7 can process new cameras such as 6D if you choose Adobe that is much more powerful and process better than DPP.  I used to use DPP like you but once I switched to LR3 about two years ago, there is no returning and LR4 is only better, noticeable better.  I gradually re-processed some old photos that previously processed by DPP and LR3.
