I posted the same question. I purchased FCP X (was using Final Cut Express) - I have the Canon XF plug in for Final Cut Pro that came w/ the camera (XF100). Guess what, FCP X does not have a "log and capture" command that the plug in is suppose to work with. I am continuing to use the Aunsoft video converter s/w to convert the MXF file to Apple ProRes 422 (takes time to convert). I am very disappointed. I am hoping I missed something and the Canon XF plug in will work w/ FCP X.

Wow. I'm hoping this is a true upgrade. I already turned off my new Final Cut Pro X and went to work on my Avid MC until I see a soulution somewhere. Thanks for posting.

Maybe this will be of some help.

I do not Transcode anything on my Avid. I link to using AMA and go to work. I can't seem to import my .mxf into Final Cut Pro X. Thanks to all who post! FCP does look exciting in many ways. I hope I can use this purchase I made today. Now I have to go to work and come back tomorrow and see the solutions offered. Converting is not a solution! The idea is to speed up the work flow.

Tony, I've checked out the link. Although I appreciate the gesture, it doesn't help. It simply tells me I blew $300. So not cool, Apple. It wouldn't be so bad if it didn't completely disagree with what Airtimevideo posted from the tech specs.
And to answer your question, Airtime, I don't think there is any software right now. I'm not sure what the deal with that spec is, other than a selling point to get us to spend money on software that won't do anything at all for us.

Downloaded fcpx at the Apple Store believeing it worked natively with " A V C H D "
FCE and iMovie both recognized my Canon HF S10 AVCHD internal memory and card and would convert the .mts files.
I just blew $299 and don't have a clue what "Canon XF MPEG-2; ingest supported with additional software"
means and likewise don't know where to purchase this vaporware neither am I capable at this moment of decrypting XF vs. HF! What part of AVCHD am I missing here.
While we're at it, the "missing manual" can only be accessed online. That's great for the Usual Suspect Verizon / Apple / Manual Author / Training Video alleged Guru's and their profit sharing BUT the added Verizon, Missing Manual, Training video's raise the $299 price.
Caveat Emptor! Will the Apple Store entertain my request for a refund?

My guess at the moment is to use FCP 7 to import your mxf files and convert them to a native .mov files and then bring those into FCP x to work on. Do that until they update. That's what I will be doing.

This is from Canon.
We appreciate your continued correspondence regarding .
I'm sorry to hear that the plugin didn't work.
Unfortunately, since Version X is a brand new version, Canon has not
created a plugin for this version yet. Unfortunately, I don't have an
estimate for the arrival of the new version of the plugin. I regret the
inconvenience this causes.
Please let us know if we can be of any further assistance with your
Thank you for choosing Canon.

@Robert: That works if you have FCP7. If you are new to FCP (like me) you are stuck.
@Airtime (or more directly at Canon's response): It would be nice if you could get support for the products you purchase. I knew this was coming two months ago. Apparently Canon wasn't paying attention.
I don't want to be a "sky is falling" type person. I want to wait until I get answers. Unfortunately neither Apple nor Canon appear to have any. I will wait before asking for a refund, but I will not wait forever. Somehow I think I wouldn't be able to request a refund after a couple weeks.
