I've been working with Catalyst Browse lately and really digging the media management tools. It will let you set in and out points for clips before copying or transcoding them, basically letting you keep only the clips and portions of clips that you want. You can also do basic color eval and correction if needed. Renaming clips is super easy. With a few clicks you can copy the card to your backup (including in/out and renamed files), and you can output any number of ProRes varieties for import into FCPX. This gets around the need to make optimized media and lets you leave files in place when importing.

One limitation is that Browse will only output 2k ProRes, but with Catalyst Prepare you can do 4k. But you have to pay for Prepare.
