[...] Well I thought no big deal, I'll just download Olympus's own raw converter given on line and then once opened up send to Lightroom for processing. No can do it won't download, it says Windows 7 is not compatible, it has to be Windows 8 or newer. What the heck!!!?!?. So now I need to buy a new computer in order to open up ORF files from my 2 new cameras ?

No, you do not need to buy a new computer in order to open up ORF files from your 2 new cameras. Simply download and install a Windows 10 virtual machine from Microsoft and run Workspace in that virtual machine. You will need a 64bit Windows 7, but most Win 7 installations were 64bit so you should be fine.

Thanks for any help.

You're wellcome.
