Nothing is really static, not even GIMP and Photoshop, except that GIMP is free and Photoshop is not.

Yes, GIMP has improved a lot in recent years, especially with regard to speed (GEGL).

So of course commercial packages as PS, PSP and Affinity to name some has useful functions that's missing in GIMP.

I would not put PSP in that group.

Why not, its actually more powerful than Gimp, and most other editors. It has adjustmen layers, can use photoshop plugins, plenty smart solution's thats actually very god.

Still GIMP may be plenty good enough for what you need as a photographer after RAW development.

One great feature of GIMP, entirely lacking in Photoshop, is GIMP's ability to ascertain the quality and chroma settings of a JPEG, and save at the same values. This helps reduce JPEG artifacting, which can get really terrible as Q levels change.

Furthermore GIMP is able to save 2x1 chroma subsampling, which is what most digital cameras produce. Photoshop cannot.
