I'm looking at getting the *ist DL as my first foray into DSLRs, but I'm concerned over compatibility with Macs.* I plan to shoot in RAW with this camera, but I'm not finding many resources on handling Pentax's RAW format on the Mac.* How do Pentaxians deal with RAW and Macs?

I've been using the very excellent Capture One LE for RAW processing (http://www.phaseone.com/Content/Soft...ESoftware.aspx). It's easy yet powerful.

Adobe Photoshop Elements 4 is available for the Mac ($80 from Adobe) and it is a very nice program for much less money than CS2. RawShooter is a Windows only application, no Mac version.

Thank you for your response everyone. I wasn't aware there were quite a few options. I'll give all of those apps a look. I love this informative forum, and can't wait to share my first pictures when my *ist arrives.
