Apple Photos and E-M1 Mk2 RAW - can't access?

Digital Photography - MacRumors Forums -
Greetings all!

Looking for a bit of assistance with this one... I shoot with an Olympus E-M1 MkII in RAW+JPEG mode, and import both. Used to use Aperture, but currently using Photos for asset management while waiting to see what MacPhun's rumored DAM software looks like.

Here's the problem: I recently wanted to edit a photo in-depth, possibly just doing adjustments in Photos but possibly using macOS High Sierra's new Photos and tie-in with Pixelmator... but I couldn't get Photos to switch over to the RAW. I checked instruction sites, which state to select the image, then go to the Image menu and choose "Use RAW as Original" (similar to Aperture, I suppose)... but that option is greyed out. Photos clearly recognizes the linked RAW, because if I export unmodified originals then I have a JPEG and ORF (Olympus Raw Format) file. I can even view the ORF, so I know my system properly has support for the E-M1 MkII's files. So what gives? Anyone else run into this issue, and know how to resolve it?
