Adobe Admits it has a Problem with Lightroom Performance

We photographers have known for some time Adobe Lightroom CC has been dragging.  It can be infuriating to just scroll through images especially when you have programs like Photo Mechanic which can do it lighting fast.  In fact, I use Photo Mechanic if I have a lot of files to go through so I can sort out the ones I want to edit...  Not good Adobe.  You shouldn't send people else where.

Well, it seems they finally admit they have a problem.  

Over on the Adobe Journal Adobe Photo Project Manager Tom Hogarty says, "I would like to address concerns recently voiced by our community of customers around Lightroom performance, as improving performance is our current top priority. We have a history, starting with our first public beta, of working with our customers to address workflow and feature needs, and we’d like to take that same approach regarding your performance concerns. We already understand many of the current pain points around GPU, import performance, certain editing tasks and review workflows and are investing heavily in improving those areas.  Over the past year we’ve added numerous enhancements to address your performance concerns but we understand we will have a lot of work to do to meet your expectations."

This is rare for Adobe to admit so this gives me great hope for the future of the product!  So, do any of you have issues finishing images because of Lightroom performance?  I bet you do as I am sure many of you use high megapixle cameras for landscape photography.  Let me know in the comments below.
