RAW developer. Imaging edge vs Lightroom vs topaz etc


picking up a Sony a7r4, and have been using Lightroom 6 until now. Given compatability, I will need to either upgrade or switch.

- I like the panorama feature of Lightroom and have 10+ years of catalog, but tried the new Lightroom cc and wasn’t terribly impressed. 
- previously tried the capture one, and didn’t quite understand what the brouhaha was about

- I would consider the OS X photos app, but I think it’s too limiting and I may switch to pc

- is imaging edge at all viable? For canon a lot of pros use it

- have been very impressed by the topaz de noise ai results that people have been creating on wildlife. I am also switching to a more automatic and quick settings approach from a bottoms up process. Is this a complete process or does it involve multiple software packages? Comments?

- is there open source software that’s at least at lightrooms level?
