Discussion BEST: Capture One Pro 7.2.2 (48) + DXO Optics Pro 9.5 (46)

There is really not a lot to choose between these two. If you want the ultimate in noise reduction and lens correction then DXO is probably the better choice; if you want superb tools, local adjustments and focus on colour then Capture One Pro would be my pick. This all explains why, traditionally, DXO is favoured by architectural photographers and
Capture One Pro by fashion photographers.

The landscape photographer requires a bit of both, but for me, Capture One Pro delivers perfectly good lens correction and key-stoning and I very rarely shoot at high ISO and hence have modest noise reduction requirements. Whilst it is necessary to keep an eye on its defaults, which supply overly aggressive luminance noise reduction and sharpening, it is such a pleasure to edit images in that it wins for me. DXO, for want of a better expression, ‘lacks soul’, and using it makes me feel like I’m engaged more in a science project than an artistic endeavour.

Adobe Lightroom - I never buy again!

Why Adobe ask me again and again without any improvement?  I think that your team know Lightroom problems very well! Maybe marketing department dominate much more then feedback from your customers!
But if you really don't know how develop better sw  you can learn from DXO Optics Pro  or  from Capture One Pro Imaging Software Zoner Photo Studio X etc.
Btw: I never! never buy any Adobe subscription product! NEVER!
