    I use Fastone Image Viewer 4.6 and works with E-PL7 raw files... I think it's a freeware download if I recall (latest version is 5.3)

    Thank you. I currently use fastone, but I guess why I can view OMD-5 images and not EPL-7. Diferente ORF tastes?

    This is the Olympus Oficial answer:

    Thank you for contacting Olympus Technical Support.

    Please note that at this time, RAW file support for these files natively in Windows is not supported, as this camera is too recent. It is up to Microsoft to update their codec pack support the latest cameras that come out, but they have not released one in a while. To see the latest one available, and for more information, including the supported cameras, please go to the following web pages:

    If you require additional assistance please reply to this email leaving the complete history intact.

    Over the years, I have used Fast Stone to view images that can't be opened in other applications. Windows must be updated to see newer cameras' Raw files, as must Camera Raw, Photoshop and Lightroom. Fast Stone seems to read anything.
