Alternatives to Adobe DNG Converter

So I've just acquired a Pen-F and my copy of CS6 doesn't support its raw files whereas it does my EM5-2.

I knew this was on the horizon but I feel peed off about it as it's doesn't seem that long since I stumped up a lot of money for a standalone copy of CS6. I don't remember Adobe saying then that it will be limited raw file support in a couple of year's time. I probably would have sprung for CC if I'd known I was only going to get two years out of CS6. If they wanted to go down this path they should have allowed each copy say, five years of updates, on a per user basis.

I now have a folder full of raw files and have no way of quickly previewing / deleting those which are no good. I considered shooting raw and jpg (which I do in some cases anyway) but for more serious work I don't want the camera slowed down by shooting both. I've played with the DNG converter which adds another step to my workflow and I'm wasting time converting poor shots that are to be deleted afterwards.

I've used PS for so long now that I don't want to waste those skills by migrating to another program and may move over to CC but it seems too soon after buying.

Just wondered what other people are doing in terms of workflows and programs? Have I missed a more simple method?
