And I'm editing only files JPG in the LR. If you take RAW, you can generally fall asleep while waiting for the file to be read ... Normally, I analyze about 100-200 pictures or more, every day, and this work turns into just some kind of nightmare.
I do not want to be in the position of defending Adobe or Lightroom, but there are thousands, probably tens of thousands or hundreds of thousands, of people using Lightroom with very big raw files, certainly bigger than the ones from your A77II, without problem. But, there are also people that do have problems. It is very weird. You can use the Lightroom optimization suggestions on the Adobe website and that might help you. This is a big headache for you so switching to some other software seems like the best and logical thing to do.

With the recent news of Adobe putting LR as subscription only (from 2018 no more updates to 6), and no more stand alone versions.
For me the creative cloud subscription just doesn't work, I have no need for most of the sofware in the bundle I just wouldn't make use of it. I'm sure some will it might work well for them. Truth is I dislike intsensely the subscription model because it offers poor value for users like myself who want raw processing.
