Apple has already announced (in press releases, referred to in posts at random on DV filmmaking sites) support for HDV codecs (both JVC and Sony) in the next version of Final Cut Pro HD, which will be released early next year. In the meantime, you can use FCPHD 4.5 with third party tools to do it (check the bottom of apple's final cut page for a list) Its really not a bad codec-- the file sizes are nearly equivelent to DV, albeit with MPEG-y artifacting on occasion.
