Adobe just dropped a small update for Lightroom and, more importantly, a fat, new version of Camera RAW with support for up to 24 new cameras. The Camera RAW 8.7 brings support for a slew of new cameras including some very important new models such as the Canon EOS 7D Mk II, Fujifilm X100T, Nikon D750, Panasonic LX100, Samsung NX1, and Sony A5100.

Adobe Camera RAW 8.7 also adds a whole new bag of lenses like the Zeiss Otus 85 f1.4 ZE and a ton of Voigtlander M-mount glass. The list of newly supported gear is too long to transcribe here, so be sure to read the full list after the jump.

Like the big Camera RAW update, support for all this new gear also comes with Lightroom version 5.7. The latest version update also brings a few new features. For starters, you’ll be able to view your friends and family’s comments and favorites on any version of Lightroom whether it be the desktop client, mobile, or the web. Importing from Aperture has also become an integrated migration tool.

The Lightroom 5.7 and new version of Adobe Camera RAW are out now, so be sure to check your Creative Cloud updates. Alternatively you can download the new version of Camera RAW here.

At its heart is a Micro Four Thirds size sensor (the same 12.8MP sensor in the GX7) with a lens that starts at f1.7 (24mm) and ends at f2.8 (75mm) in its zoom range. The lens has Power OIS too–which is very typical for Panasonic. The camera has has the same processing engine as the GH4–which makes is truly a composite camera.

We got to spend some time with the LX100 at Panasonic’s New Jersey headquarters earlier this month. And trust us, it’s a reason to get hyped.
