My partner has been using the preview release of photoshop CS 3 for a few months (if you have CS 2 pro, you can upgrade to the demo of CS 3). I'm not a graphics guy, but the photoshop overhaul is pretty amazing, and the application is a big step forward in overall usability.

3D capabilities? hmm Adobe does offer Acrobat 3D: [adobe.com...] We've toyed with the idea of picking it up but at the current price of $545 for the upgrade and $995 for the full, its a bit much for something we may not use all that much. Based on the price alone though I doubt Adobe would include this in the bundle.
It will be interesting to see what it costs, and if its affordable for the "small" firms out there. Also I'm really hopeful that they will give some responsiveness back to Photoshop, CS2 is bloatware in my opinion. And even though I know there is not much hope at all, I can still hope that they will leave in Fireworks, my fav for doing up web graphics quickly.
New to the Photoshop family, Adobe Photoshop CS3 Extended delivers everything in Photoshop CS3 and more. Render and incorporate 3D images into your 2D composites. Stop time with easy editing of motion graphics on video layers. And probe your images with measurement, analysis, and visualization tools.
