    CS3 doesn't support 5d MKii RAW files. You can either upgrade to CS4 or get lightroom

    Just different. Lightroom is not a complete image editor. Neither is PSE 7.

    You can always download Adobes DNG converter and edit your images in any Adobe product.

    If your copy of CS3 is registered with Adobe, it costs $199 to upgrade to CS4.

    That would be my suggestion. Adobe DNG. It's free.

    If you have the CDs that came with your camera, you should have Canon's suite of software that should help with your needs. This software also allows you to set EXIM phtographer and copyright info in your camera to be embedded in all your shots.

    software summary:
    Canon EOS 5D Mark II
