I've been using Capture One as my primary raw conversion app.  I find it better than Lightroom: I agree it's not always a 'clear' win.   In addition to Capture One, I use DXO's NIK  Silver Effects to convert to black and white.  

I recently learned that using layers and  the Color Editor in Capture One results in black and white conversions that are excellent.  I've used the Black and White conversion in Capture One but that doesn't work on layers.  Using the Color Editor keeps the original 'untouched.'  Cool.  

I learned this from  Alex on RAW - a new website(for me) that seems to have a lot of useful info about Capture One. 

Image to the left was converted using the Color Editor.
