Comparison showing LR vs C1 processing. LR is at max sharpening and Texture and Clarity are at 80 and 40 respectively. C1 sliders have barely broken the sweat.

Sorry, but I think Lr takes this test. I think you need to work on C1 a bit more to make them equal. Lr has captured more detail, and DR. I think the subtle brown tones in the photo are more pleasing too. In my own tests on m43s images, they are much more equal in quality after roughly the same amount of work. I don't think you can compare the 'numbers' on the sliders with each other since we have no way of knowing what the defaults are at load time. In my mind, it is the amount of work to get them to be equal to each other, at least as much as possible that is important.

We don't really know what "barely breaking a sweat" means.

If you find LR better, I have no problem with your choice. However I see too much noise in flat and out of focus areas despite having applied sharpness mask. There is some apparent texture here, which is simply noise and not actual detail. Moreover the sharp edges are obviously over sharpened. I only pushed the slider to max to show the limits of LR processing. In real life I never go above 80 because over this setting the artifacts are painfully obviously.

Breaking the sweat means that, first of all if I am not happy with sharpness and detail, I have a lot more leverage (though I dont need in this case). Next the clarity setting I used is "natural", If I choose Punch, that will take it several notches above even at the same slider setting. Thirdly If I need to selectively apply these, I can create a layer and apply local sharpness/clarity with the same fine control. in LR, the sharpness control for brush tool is not as nuanced.

BTW I did not do any Color/DR processing. Lightroom picks up camera settings from exif and applies automatically, including the color profile selected in camera. So what you see is what LR did automatically based on Camera settings (point in favor of LR), C1 just rendered its default rendering for this camera.
