Your questions are impossible to answer for more reasons than I want to explaine.

I like Lumion very much, however, the last time I tried it, it was obvious to me that it would never be able to generate a truly hi-quailty rendeing. Pretty pictures yes, lots of fun to use, I would use it a lot I am sure if I could justify the expence of it. I have made some very good looking renderings with it - if you don't look too close. I would say that I can make better renderings with Lumion than I can with Archicad - but if its a high-quality Rendeing I want, then neither one of them can do the job.
If you want the best possbile Rendeing then go with Vray and 3ds. I think the best results for views/images of buildings can be made with this combination. The downside is that it takes a lot of still and very expensive hardware and software to generate some thing better than what you can generate with Archicad. Maxwell Render/Maxwell Studio is the best solution for me based on the hardware and software I can afford, and I can generate the Renderings I need with the limited skills I have - not being a full time Rendering Guru.
