Anyone tried Affinity Photo with Sony A7RIV files?

I' m using the new Sony A7RIV and encountered a solid slowdown when importing a batch of 40 RAW image files into my 27" iMac yesterday. It took endlessly waiting / beachball. Half an hour? Then working on these files was nearly impossible. VERY, VERY slow (not workable). Now I know these files are big, but my new iMac should easily be able to handle those ( my iMac:  2019/i9/8 core/2Tb SSD/ 64Gb Memory).

I just tried to import those files into Photos, and there I get greyed out icons with warning signs, saying " no camera information" . I think I' m being too impatient and that Mac OS (and maybe Affinity Photo), should first be upgraded to handle the files of this new camera.

What' s your opinion? Am I right in thinking this? Any experiences here?
