Yes Final Cut will import from a camera natively with AVCHD

NO it wont import the files on their own, which still sucks.

"Final Cut Pro X will still not import a stand-alone AVCHD video file. Importing AVCHD still requires access to the original AVCHD camcorder, or a valid Camera Archive disk structure."

In my experience, when files are brought into FCPX via the "Camera Archive disk structure" method, the video takes forever to render in FCPX. Plus, there are occasional hiccups in the process. My eye can detect no quality difference in MP4 vs. AVCHD when both are shot at 1080p.
