I find Digikam is slow or extremely slow when working with D7K images.

I shoot everything in raw and generate jpgs from them.

- it takes a long time to display the thumbnails in the gallery, whether
or not I exclude the raws

- its slow moving between the thumbnails and images.  There is a very
noticeable delay going from image to image.

- it takes forever to display the thumbnails on the import page from a
USB card reader.   As a matter of fact, it generally crashes before ~200
images loaded on a card can be displayed

All this is compared to working with 40D images the same way.

Rawstudio has none of these problems.  It loads all the thumbnails in
mere seconds.

My computer has a T8100 with 4GB of RAM and an SSD drive.
