Lightroom 2.2 release date

Adobe’s website is now listing December 16 as the expected release date for Lightroom 2.2. This version will include support for the Canon 5D Mark II and other new cameras. I’m looking forward to being able to import my 5D Mark II images directly into Lightroom, so I hope the date is accurate.

Update: Hmm, it’s already been removed from that page. Guess they jumped the gun by posting before the download was there. I should have taken a screenshot.

In the interim, I’ve had good results using version of 5.2 of Adobe’s free DNG converter to process my 5D2 RAW images. After conversion, I can import the DNG files into Lightroom 2.1.
