I switched to capture one pro when version 20.0.4 came out and had loads of issues with their catalogs becoming corrupt and general software bugs.

Their support took a month to reply and basically tried blaming my hardware (kept saying external drives were unstable and that I should use internal drives for catalogs. Except, I was using internal drives all along...).

An update was released recently and I haven't had time to check if it's more stable but if quick support and solid performance are required for a business environment I'd advise you to stick with Adobe.

There are no refunds offered either, so consider that closely. And there are many reports of hardware acceleration producing glitched images with certain cards.
Switched from Lightroom to Capture One about 2 years ago, and haven't looked back. The lower price (vs. subscription) is reason enough, but I also just like the output better.
They release a new version every year, with a significant upgrade price. Yes - you are not forced into an upgrade every year (or two), but if you do, it's not too far from a subscription model.

They do have a 30 day trial so you can make sure it meets your needs.

Have had plenty of issues with Adobe support being less than helpful and getting them to fix anything is next to impossible.

Have tried about every editing app out there, luminar, on1, PS/LR, C1, dxo. Settled on a combo of C1 and Affinity photo. C1 is much faster than LR and gives me layer support so way less shuttling to another app to do stuff.

Every method has +/- so gotta hit some trials and see what works best for you. That's the most important thing, try a bunch and see what you like.

Valid point, just trying to let people know my experience before they purchase and activate it with no ability for a refund.

When it's working, C1pro suits me well. Though the times when it's not would be very frustrating if photography was my business.

I have used the previous versions of C1 and really liked it. There is a learning curve (watch the videos) as the controls are different from Adobe, but once you get the hang of it, I found it much easier to get "very good results" compared to Lightroom.

The library management was still not as easy/powerful as Lightroom, but the processor and color editor felt like it was a generation ahead of Lightroom.

I went from the free C1 for Sony, to the full C1 for Sony, and eventually upgraded to the full suite, so I could manage all my photos including iPhone.

I may continue to use Lightroom 6 (non subscription) for the Library management and Viewer for processed photos.

Why should I pay $170 instead of just using freeware? I'll wait.

Adobe did subscription because everyone bootleged the software. It was the only thing they could do to stay in business.

If you have Sony or Fuji, you can download the express model for free. It does most of the things a typical photographer needs. I did pay for the full version. Also if you use free Capture One for cataloging and use something like Affinity Photo for editing, it's only a $25 combo. Affinity Photo can do pretty much everything C1 can do and much more.

They did subscription because of GREED. Up to now, you can still pirate the latest CC products
