I was able to import high-res images from the OMD MKII into LR 2015.9.

Would you be able to post some sample .ORF images to DropBox or similar so we can confirm whether there is an issue in LR?

Is it perhaps the ORI files that you're thinking of? The ORI's are the first (standard res) of the 8 shots, and are ignored by Lightroom unless you rename them. I was able to import high res ORF's ok.

Yes, I need to import the .ORI files as well as the hi res. so that I can use either according to resolution requirements. Perhaps LR could change the file type to .ORF and add a number to the file number? I can import the .ORIs in Olympus Viewer, but LR is my editor of choice.

Support for the Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark II was added to LR 6.9 / 2015.9.  Check which version of LR you're running by doing Help > System Info. If you're running LR 6.9 / 2015.9 or earlier, you can download 6.13 / 2015.13 from here:   If you're running LR Classic 7, post back here.

Once again, LR needs to import the .ORI files as well as the .ORF files to optimize output from the camera.
