user friendliness at import

import options are not enough:
1. we need to be able to filter show only jpeg or raw, and then order. I might want to have filter and a specific order (or at least possibility to order by media type first and then by creation date)
2. at import lightroom should see oh the raw pic resolution is much lower than the JPG so maybe the user made a mistake - should ask take over higher resolution JPG if available (because I have made a mistake)
3. often the import settings are glitchy. If I always add to a collection (because I want to have an inbox) and I don't want to use folders because they mean nothing to me, especially if indexed with date lightroom doesn't remember the add to collection thing.
4. introduce sharing options from the mac OS to lightroom (why can't I check out the pictures with finder/image capture and share to lightroom - it's done for photos and aperture...).
5. Importing should be done in a way that doesn't slow the computer so much (no problems with i7 but an i5 iMac with enough RAM that works fine with aperture slows down to almost frozen when importing with lightroom), how about you reduce the thread priority

Feature requests are best entered as a “one feature request per post” method. Adobe accumulates votes on individual feature requests and follows the commentary on each. When you combine feature requests in a single post, it brings down the vote total and dilutes its impact. 

Additionally, many requests made have been made before, and consolidating your feature(s) with those, request strengthens everyone’s cause. When there are multiple requests in a single post, we cannot combine them to join your collective voices. 

Please consider separating your feature requests into individual posts.
