LR needs a better way to handle jpeg plus raw pairs. It is the one thing that is delaying my switching over from Aperture.

For many enthusiasts, processing raw files does not offer improvement over the majority of camera-produced jpegs. Moreover, some camera jpegs (like the Fuji X-series) have compensations not available for the raw files. And importing and manipulating jpegs in LR is dramatically faster than for raws.

For those few files that benefit from raw processing, one can load the raw file.

Aperture makes this easy, with its "Use Raw as Original" option, which can be selected after the import, as long the raw exists alongside the jpeg on a connected disk.

Since Aperture is discontinued, maybe LR can copy this extremely useful functionality without IP worries.
