The K-01 does not produce PEF files, but a form of DNG files. To my knowledge, it does not have the option to do either PEF or DNG.

@RedThunder: Why are you processing JPEG in Aperture? SilkyPix should be all you need to go from DNG to a finished JPEG.. Yes the UI is different at first, but I didn't find the learning curve any longer than I did Lightroom. I personally don't like Lightroom's sluggish performance and awkward importation process.
I have tried SilkyPix and it works fine. I processed the RAW DNG files in SilkyPix and converted to JPEG then brought those into Aperture so I could have the files in a combined library. But, the SilkyPix version provided with the K-01 does not support my other camera (a Nikon V1 that produces NEF files). And, my preference is to use just one RAW converter.

Correct, the version supplied with the K-01 only supports the K-01 and Q, doesn't even support the DNG files created by the K-7 and certainly no .PEF files are supported..
Though that's not a huge inconvenience personally..
DNG was supposed to be a standard for obvious reasons and for archival purposes, it's plain stupid for develoeprs to cripple software where DNG is concerned (IMPO)
