Wow - Aperture is so much better!!!
Aperture has a nice tone curve but the colours are off. LR has an over exposed tone curve and the colours off. The advantage with LR is that you can create new profiles to correct both the tone and colours. Out of the box though Aperture looks nicer, at least for my Nikon cameras.
Aperture 3 has profiles too. Just sayin.
Aperture has presets, these are not the same as LR Camera Profiles which actually adjust the RAW decode.
Aperture (3 at least) has camera profiles that you can customise somewhat.
Aperture 3 does not have camera profiles like Lightroom. It has a very simple raw adjustment only. Lightroom camera profiles are a totally different concept and very powerful. It does take some skill to create a good camera profile though, it is not as easy it would first appear from reading the Adobe instructions for the DNG profiler.I guess you could still call a 'raw brick' preset a camera profile in Aperture but the products are very different in this area in reality.
The colors for NEF files are a little off in Aperture 3, however with canon files ACR is not even close...
