Adobe Lightroom’s import is 600% slower than the competition

The title says it all, the latest Adobe Lightroom is 600% slower when importing photos than the competition. Here are the details:

"I ran a test by taking 97 RAW photos from my Fuji XT1 and importing them into all three computers. In all cases, I transferred the photos from my SD card to my hard drive, and added but did not move or copy the photos on import. Test results importing 97 photos into each program:

  • Lightroom- 190 seconds just to bring in the photos, 685 seconds to bring in all photos and build full previews
  • Capture One – 27 seconds to bring in photos, 114 seconds to bring in all photos and build full previews
  • Photo Mechanic – 12 seconds to bring in photos and allow for lightning fast full-screen browsing
  • Photos App – 9 seconds to bring in all photos and allow for lightning fast full-screen browsing
  • Dark Table – 14 seconds to bring in all photos and allow for lightning fast full-screen browsing"
