Sketch, Affinity Designer/Photo - anyone using them 100% of the time?

I know it's been asked before, but I think it's been long enough to ask again. Is anyone using Sketch, Affinity Designer, Affinity Photo as their full time design tools?
At work we've started migrating to Sketch for new work and for pure UI design it is now a great tool, if sometimes a little flaky. But the main thing I miss from Photoshop is being able to easily manipulate photographic layers and add filters etc. But I'm by no means an expert at it yet.
But I haven't tried Affinity yet so curious about that as well.
Thanks @Camor and @Bjarni. Kinda the same for me - Sketch is great for UI design but I can't go without Photoshop and Illustrator yet. I was wondering if Affinity could fill that need in conjunction with Sketch but at least it seems like no one reading this thread has made that leap yet.
i use sketch for UI stuff too, but really if you need to manipulate a photo it has to be photoshop, and i find it difficult to make complex illos in sketch too (something about the pen tool and ability to select layers..) so i do that in illustrator still. but now my shortcuts keep getting messed in my head. why can't we have a cmd+K for illustrator?
