It's a matter of priorities, not wants

Funny Richard, I have two of your products but can't remember ever writing to ask to you to procduce them. Are you really suggesting that Adobe is so out of touch with the photographic community on the web that they don't know that Merril owners are hoping for support from Lightroom. Jeff Schewe and Mr Chan are two LR engineers who are prolific contributers on Luminous Lightroom, and we all know Michaels feelings about Sigma software. Come on Richard, hyou can't be serious.

Adobe being Adobe assumes that every photographer on the planet wants ACR support for every camera.

But they only have so many people and so much time to work on camera support. To that end, when choosing what work to do he squeaky wheel gets the grease, as is true in so many other areas of life...

It's free to write Adobe and does no harm, and it could possibly bring about a greatly desired result.  So what is the harm in asking Adobe for something you want?

What is obvious, going back to the original post that started this thread, is that Adobe will seemingly not be adding this without further motivation.  So we as a photographic community must act to provide it.
