I know it's OT but a brief Lightroom 5 question.

Just got my Panasonic G6 2 lens kit and decided that along with it I would get Lightroom 5.

I know this isn't a camera question but there are a lot of Lightroom gurus here who can probably answer this quickly.

Is there no way to use Lightroom without having to catalog, library and import all of my pictures?

I have thousands of pictures taken with 7D, Eos M, Nikon D80, D100, point and shoots etc. and the task seems quite daunting.

I've been using Photoshop for years and have my pictures stored in folders and dated just like I like them.  Seems like with Lighroom I will have to reinvent the wheel.  I really would like to just use the product to process my raw files! I'm wondering what some of you folks do who were in a similar situation.  Any help or suggestions here would be most appreciated.
