Apple Ars reviews Aperture 1.1, and concludes: "I have to admit, I was very skeptical that Apple could whip together professional-quality RAW conversion for numerous camera models in a few months. Either they bought some existing technology we don't know about or there are some seriously overworked software engineers getting some much-needed sleep right about now. But who cares? The plain fact is that Aperture 1.1's high-quality RAW processing says "we can move quickly in areas where we've had little experience" and the discount/refund says "users won't be expected to beta test at their own expense again." Ars's review of Aperture 1.0 was quite negative.

Simply supporting the formats is meaningless. The point is that there is no 'correct' interpretation of how to convert from RAW sensor data to RGB/sRGB, hence the widely varying results in the resulting images processed by various apps. Dcraw may well support all those cameras, but how good is the resulting output?
