Yes it is.
And it works fine to import to iMovie and then from iMovie to FCPX. But should that really be necessary? And isn't there a quality loss in doing so?
A detail that might be of interest: Durng import the text "No data from device" is displayed in upper right corner of the video.

I've just tested a Sony deck using DV and HDV and imports are fine using 10.0.7.
No Data from Device doesn't sound good.
Using iMovie shouldn't degrade your quality but it shouldn't be necessary.
Are you seeing timecode in the camera screen?

No, there's no timecode in the camera screen.
Luckily enough I happen to have two Sony PD150P-cameras and when I try to import from the other one, the timecode is visible and the import works. A quick view in the camera menues doesn't show any differences, so one of the cameras must have a defect timecodefunction. I will try to reset it and see if I get it to work. If not I'll have to stick to the good one for importing.
But this raises another question:
I might want to import video from analog devices like VHS och Hi8, standards that - as far as I know - do not have any timecode at all. Is that impossible i FCPX? In Final Cut 7 I could use the "transmit and capture"-function to catch a running video stream. But I don't find that function in FCPX.
