[UPDATE] Apple: Aperture now supports X-TRANS

[UPDATE] Here is a very quick first look by thomasfitzgeraldphotography. “The files seem to be much sharper and retain much more detail that Lightroom’s efforts, and it doesn’t mangle fine detail like Lightroom does. It’s really impressive” See the LR-Aperture comparison pics here.

Apple updated the Digital Camera RAW software. Version 4.05 adds RAW image compatibility for the following cameras to Aperture 3 and iPhoto ’11:
Fujifilm X20
Fujifilm X100S
Fujifilm X-E1
Fujifilm X-Pro1

It happened, finally! download it here!

cheers
