Adobe Aperture Importer

Adobe officially released it's Aperture import plug-in on the same day Apple released its last update to Aperture.

Adobe Just Released a Simple and Free Aperture to Lightroom Migration Plugin

https://creative.adobe.com/addons/products/3213#.VEEQzIcvt-X

Description
Easily migrate your existing Aperture and iPhoto libraries into Lightroom with this Lightroom plug-in. The following data from your Aperture and iPhoto libraries will be imported into Lightroom:

Flags
Star Ratings
Keywords
GPS Data
Rejects
Hidden Files
Color Labels*
Stacks*
Face Tags*

*Color Labels, Stacks, and Face Tags will be imported as Lightroom keywords.

Since adjustments to photos made in Aperture and iPhoto can not be read into Lightroom, this plug-in will import both the original images and copies of the images that have adjustments applied.

This plugin requires Lightroom 5.6 or later and works on Mac only.
Language . . .
Personally I'll wait and see what Photos has to offer next year. If I was going to switch to something else I would seriously be considering Aftershot Pro 2. Available for the next few days as part of a StackSocial bundle...

Agreed. I'm in no rush - not much that can't be done now with a couple of plug-ins from NIK for my work.

I'm a happy Lightroom user but I appreciate your bringing that Mac software bundle to my attention, it's a great deal all around.

The new Photos app on iOS8 is an improvement over the old one. It has a decent amount of exposure adjustments but the iPhoto app no longer works under iOS8 and Photos doesn't have all the features iPhoto had. If the upcoming Mac version is anything like the iOS8 version, you are going to need Lightroom or another comparable program.

I just finished up moving my library over to lightroom from aperture. I used the adobe tool. It worked pretty well. It seemed to grab too many images, which is always preferable then not enough. So now i have untouched images, and re-touched images of the same file. Not a huge deal in my case, but people with larger libraries might have more issues. (mine is only about 3500 images or so)

Also, big thing to keep in mind, sign out of anything in aperture before you do the import, otherwize the tool will grab all of your icloud, facebook, flickr images ect. It took me importing 3 different times to figure this out. (not sure if it's covered in the instructions, i didn't read them all that well)

It will import all of your images into LR basically structured the same as they were in aperture. Although, it seemed to "flatten" out my folder structure. All told, it worked pretty well, and most importantly didn't seem to lose any images or screw anything up in the process.

Keep in mind, i was starting with a totally blank LR catalog, so your mileage might vary if importing in to an established one.

The OS X version is going to have a plug in architecture. We'll find out next year.
