Adobe has released Camera Raw 8.8 for Photoshop CS6 and Photoshop CC. In addition to fixing a few bugs from the previous version, they’ve added support for a plethora of new lenses and cameras.
On the bug fix front, Adobe has taken care of an issue regarding the magenta highlights when working with Canon EOS 70D RAW files at particular ISO settings. Also fixed are various vignetting issues that have plagued images taken with the following lenses: Voigtlander VM 21mm f/1.8 Ultron, Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 24-85mm f/3.5-4.5G ED VR, Zeiss Distagon T 1,4_35 ZM and Pentax FA645 MACRO 120mm F4.
Additional changes include the correction of the EXIF name for Zeiss’ OTUS 85mm f/1.4 (Canon and Nikon Mount) and an updated lens profile to account for the firmware changes to Sigma’s 150-600mm F5-6.3 DG OS HSM S014.

Brian…as usual thanks for the update. Now I have a question for you. I shoot primarily with Sony A7 and a6000, also have lots of raw format files from previous Minoltas and Sony Alpha. I use LR as my main point of access and organization, and beyond develop module I edit extensively with PS. Now I am contemplating the idea of DNG format, I understand all the technical aspects, pros and cons, but still have not decided yet. I did some test and some ARW gets reduced some get bigger, also I have read some performance degradation of Sony files within the Develop module.
Anyway in short I’d prefer your advise…hehe…also do you convert to DNG?
Thanks as always for your kindness and time to respond
I don’t convert to DNG. I leave my RAW files in RAW format.
