Rick LangBlackmagic Cinema Camera - edit workflow using 12 bit RAW CinemaDNG

Blackmagic Design specifically mentions it’s new cinema camera is “perfect" for use with Apple’s Final Cut Pro X editor. I understand if one selects the camera’s ProRes option for recording or output, this would be true enough for processing 10-bit 4:2:2 video. But Blackmagic’s DaVinci Resolve 9.0 can apparently process the 12-bit CinemaDNG files. I’m not clear if FCP X can handle the CinemaDNG files though so it would appear the ProRes option is the best it can do.

Does anyone know if FCP X will be able to use the RAW CinemaDNG files either natively or via a plugin?

If the answer is “no” today (or in July when the camera is available), I suppose it’s always a possibility in the future. An internet search didn’t help much as CinemaDNG appears to have a fairly slow adoption rate in the industry since it’s proposal April 2008. Perhaps this camera will be an impetus for accelerated adoption.
