Hello, I use lightroom cc (not classic) and use it view/edit the raw files from an a7r iii. I have a 2018 MB pro hooked up to a 5k LG display via thunderbolt. Even with the files on an a7r iii, Lightroom CC is pushed pretty hard. It's bad enough that I don't edit full screen but have to make sure Lightroom is no bigger than 60-70% of the screen. 

 

I'm not bashing on Lightroom (or Apple), 5K is a lot of pixels to push and these are big files, it's just the way it is. But...I'm looking at possibly getting an a7r iv, but I am worried that the considerably larger files will cause lightroom to choke even more. Has anyone tried this? If so, can you share your experiences?

Update: it's not that much different. Presets seemed to take a hair longer, but overall I didn't notice a huge difference. Not bad considering that the size of the raw files.
