It doesn't matter whether you use Winbox, web interface, or CLI, the same configuration capabilities exist.
The determination is how you configure it, what version of RouterOS you have, and what the hardware you have is capable of. The CRS3xx series are the easiest to configure, with the older CRS and switch chips in various other products of theirs getting progressively more difficult and more limited in hardware-accelerated features.

Mikrotik is a decent product and I'm always amazed at their features set, but...
Using the UI to configuring the switch will punt too much traffic toward the CPU. However, it is possible to configure the switch fabric with the cli and attain the desired results.
It does not compare to a JNP QFX5100 or a Extreme Network x650, x670... etc.

Have you actually looked at Mikrotik switches? I don't like the OS, but the hardware does what you want it to.
If necessary, buy your SFP modules from FS.com and get them coded as Mikrotik modules at the factory - that's what we do for Cisco, Brocade, Juniper, Extreme, etc.
Even the top-of-the-line Mikrotik only costs US$899.

Thank you. The problem is that to get a price lower than U$D 3000 I have to resort to a used device.

Used Juniper QFX5100-48T will do it. Probably overkill but you can grab one cheap @ebay

I'm looking for a switch with the following capabilities:

. link aggregation LACP
. slots for SFP+
. seamlessly when trunking vlans through the link aggregation.
And essentially that doesn't exceed US$D 2000 and is compatible with
10GBASE-ER and/or 10GBASE-ZR modules that are not from the vendor itself

If any of you have a good experience with a device that meets these
