it is not a secret that GIMP can't handle 16bit images until yet, this would be come with version 2.10. But GIMP did not crash, it scales the 16bit files down to 8bit
If you mean rawfiles from a camera you have to use UFRaw or another external RAW-converter like Rawtherapee, Darkroom or Photivo or something else in front of GIMP.

...,

jpg is'nt 16bit, it is 8bit
jpg2000 can handle 16bit, but i've never seen any photographic-tool that uses jpg2000

Should not be a problem, my little pentax is 16MP, jpeg images are around 2.8 MB open in Gimp 4608x3456 pix and show about 150MB before any editing.

Maybe the question should be. What is wrong with the images rather than what is wrong with GIMP.

That is the one snag with it, no 98% jpeg setting, otherwise great little camera.

I've done and worked with images in Gimp that were in the 10,000 plus pixel width range (granted it was slower than all hell on my computer) so must be your computer or something.
