I got my E-PL5 several days ago and took it out yesterday for the first time. When loading the raw files into LR4, one thing I noticed is that it takes much longer for LR to process the raw file. In particular, it takes maybe 2 or 3 times as long to show the file in full detail when zooming in to 100% compared to my Canon/Nikon/Sony raw files. Does anyone else have this issue or is it just me?

I'm not noticing any difference from Nikon nef's to the Oly orf's in LR4.3.

As others have suggested, check your catalog and try a defrag. Check your cache settings and try to put it on a separate drive. I've also noticed that LR (and PS) loves memory and its cheap these days so maybe increase that?

Just for referance, my system is an i7, 16GB, 120GB SSD for the OS and a couple of 1TB data drives. Running Win7 64.
