I consider this a confising behaviour occuring sometimes maybe a part-bug:

Scenario: In Loupe view, you can switch betwen photos using arrows. Sometimes, this operation is fast, but it takes around two seconds - the photo is shown immediately, but it takes some time till the UI is refreshed (Histogram, Metadata panel etc.), photo is redrawn in high res. etc. This is not the bug yet.

The problem is: During this operation, you are already seeing the new photo, but the filmstrip below show the previous photo as selected. And if you press the "B" button to ad it into quick collection, the _previous_ photo is added into the collection. Although you are watching different photo. I found this very confusing at start, before I found I have to wait. But this bug hase been here for years and would be nice to fix it :)

I have a Windows 10 on a very fast computer (i7 6700K, 32 GB RAM, nvidia GTX 1070).

Thanks for your diligence, Vit. I am able to reproduce with a Mac and a Magic mouse with a finger gesture (similar to a mouse wheel).  I will file a bug.
