Thanks for uploading the image.  I have tested opening this with
versions 4.4.10, 5.0.0-rc1 and the latest development code; it works
fine with all three from what I can see.  I certainly don't get the
error above.

I would suggest updating by downloading the bioformats package from
here: http://downloads.openmicroscopy.org/bio-formats/5.0.0-rc2/


Copy this jar file into the ImageJ plugins folder, and make sure that
any existing loci_tools.jar in this folder is removed.  You will be
using the new version the next time you restart ImageJ.
