    In help \ check for updates \ new software for LR is available (5.3) \ selecting download, the resulting pop-up 'says' download 5.2. This is very confusing as I already have 5.2 installed. Instead I expected download 5.3. I'm hesitant to proceed. Anyone else encountered this?

    Just download the 5.3 "trial" from the Adobe Lightroom site. That's the full latest version and will update over your 5.2.

    Forgive me, but that does sound rather counter intuitive, but you've done this with success I guess. When you say the trial version of 5.3 updates 5.2, how does it validate that the version already loaded is valid. Does it ask for the product ID? That's the only logical way I think.

    No, it doesn't ask for anything. Just run the installer and it will automatically pick up whatever serial you're already using.
