Con Thumbnail preview slower than others
Other tools display the thumbnail preview images in the overview much faster. For example ACDSee is extremely fast, StudioLine is faster, too. On Daminion I first see a gray box then after at least 1 second the thumbnail is displayed. Also Lightroom 5 doesn't have such loading times.
