K100D super RAW files on Mac

Does anyone use a Mac with their K100D Super?
I am having trouble getting iphoto to recognize the RAW format (.pef) output of the camera.
Does Aperture import .pef?
How about Adobe Lightroom?

Check out this thread.

From what we found out it can't recognize the raw output from the Super model of the K100D.

Hopefully, Apple will get an upgrade in the works soon. It is not just Iphoto but Aperture too. I don't know about Adobe Lightroom. I do not have access to a .pef file from the K100D super to test with.

edit: I checked out Adobe's site and Lightroom 1.3 and Photoshop CS3 do support the super

Info here on Adobe site Supported file formats in Photoshop Lightroom 1.0-1.3

Had the same problem when i first bought my D200. I just converted to DNG until a newer version of ACR was available.

Lightroom should open them.
