Looking to buy Lightroom 6, does the perpetual version support the Sony A6300?

On this link it says the Sony A6300 need version 6.5, but the last version was 6.14, is that a more recent version? I'm getting confused by the version numbering methodology, because 14, is higher than 5, unless 5 is supposed to represent 50 meaning version 6.50. Although I assume if my camera needs version 6.5 and that 6.14 is the most up to date version then I'm covered.

Also, how long can I feasibly use Lightroom 6? It seems like raw support for late model cameras is the biggest issue, but that I can also convert to DNG, which isn't a huge issue for me. I'm more of a hobby photographer so I'd love to be able to only pay for 1 version as opposed to a subscription.

I do the same... Just an extra step on Adobe DNG converter, which works pretty quickly anyway. I'm happy to take that extra step considering I paid like 25 bucks for Lightroom 5

Yeah, just use the converter and it wouldn't matter if the older LR can open or not.

Also, download Capture One Express which is free for Sony user and you can use it as a RAW to JPEG converter but for some people they even just do all the basic editing in Capture One only.
