One of the things I was previously dissatisfied with in Aperture was RAW conversion; to the extent that I often used Capture NX2 in this process particularly for prints. It's early yet, but Aperture 3 seems to have made some significant improvements in their RAW conversion engine, particularly appearing to be a closer match to NX2, particularly if one incorporates Nikon style presets into the process in Aperture. As I look at this more closely, I will report more, but I am not the only one who thinks so. Interesting post here comparing Aperture 3 RAW conversion to Lightroom 2.6

Tonu Wu's blog report has shown up here

Of note is his use of Aperture for nearly all his video editing for his Vimeo post. I think as time moves on video editing features are probably one of the things Apple will concentrate very heavily on. Smart, I think considering their strengths in the video editing field.
For most photographers we have reached a type of saturation point with what we need to do editing wise with our still images.
Though I have not really got into video yet, just dabbling, my next DSLR will likely have video, so making the transition with Aperture, rather than worrying about becoming a Final Cut guru is probably a more practical approach for me.
