Just look at the info on Apple's website:

Native HDV Support
Unlike other solutions, Final Cut Pro 5 acquires HDV media via FireWire and keeps it in the original format, transferring it into the system without any generation loss. Output via FireWire back to an HDV camera or deck

The Apple statement( ...Unlike other solution...) is amusing from a company that is in fact close to last in bringing HDV editing to its product and obviously hasn't bothered to find out what their competitors on the PC are doing. To my knowledge Premiere Pro 1.5.1 is the only NLE that transcodes to an intermediate format on capture. Edius Pro3, Ulead, Pinnacle Edition 6 all will give the option of editing in native m2t or are that way by default. IF they had said editing on the MAC then it would have had more credibility!!!

Well, to be fair it doesn't say Unlike all other solutions...

It may be crappy maketing speak, but it is a legit statement.

I'd wait until FCP 5 ships and people are using it. Lumiere HD is nice, but my experiences (it's probably been fixed) is the video looks slightly darker and fuzzier. iMovie HD and Final Cut Express HD use the Apple Intermediate Codec (AIC) which introduces artifacts in the footage.

That is a very good idea. All pros should wait for FCP5!
