I don't like their prices either, because it's just a raw converter and doesn't even come with photo management. If you buy into Capture One + Media Pro, it's 470 â‚¬. Like DXO, they are not fast with supporting new cameras. Capture One alone is 280 â‚¬. Compared to that, Lightroom is pretty cheap - but cannot support Multi user work like Capture One... Actually, I don't see how this app, which is opposite of intuitive, get along with more than 1 users...
I believe when I looked at that list a few years ago that "plus some more" part didn't exist.
I don't use Media Pro and I actually paid a hilariously low amount of money for Capture One. They have a Sony version which has all the features but works only with JPEGs, TIFFs and Sony RAW files. My analog workflow is already in TIFF and right now I only have a Sony A7 so 50â‚¬ for Capture One 9 is quite a good deal for me. It also came with multiple seats so I have one activation at home and one at work.
If we compare that to my experience with LR, I had the version 4 bundled with my Nex 7 for a very good price (60-70$ or so). I was quite happy with it for quite a few years since LR 5 brought nothing groundbreaking, but I still had to make the change because LR4 wouldn't support my then newly bought A7. Annoyed at that, I bought into CC subcription a few months later.
Adobe CC Photographer subscription is really a good deal where I live because they did not adjust for the exchange rate in the past years so people are paying less than 6$ for PS+LR CC subscription per month. Compared to 11â‚¬ per month Capture One subscription, that's a steal. I was using it for photo management purposes since it was simply peanuts money.
The problem is, I don't like where Adobe has been heading in the past years. After LR3/4 switchover, they brought nothing really good onto the table. They are turning everything into more common-user-friendly thus dumbing everything down. They faced a huge backlash when they changed the import screen on the latest version but that's probably the only time they stepped back. I had quite liked the LR Mobile thing because it was letting me show my portfolio on my iPad on the go (It was quite useless for everything else) but even that failed a few times and left me in the cold where potential clients were looking at an iPad with gray squares where the photos should have been. It gave up syncing and simply never picked it up again. Adobe was unable to resolve the issue for months, then I quit.
Simply went deeper into Capture One and never regretted anything.
