Yes it is a better image processor to the LR2 version, better noise control, lens correction to name a few of the points that I benefited from.

Absolutely, the image quality is much better due to the points William makes above.

It's been so long I don't recall exactly but what William said.

I think it also added an adjustment brush? Or its better?

Eh, like I said. The improved NR is worth it even if nothing else is.

For noise reduction alone it is worth it. You can even re-work some old shots from pervious cameras and give new life to images you thought were useless (if you haven't deleted them)!

I redid some old images when I tried LR3 (images processed in CS4 mainly) and it was as if I'd upgraded my camera....a noticeable improvement in IQ.

LR3 was the single best software purchase ever for me.

Yes, I've got CS5, but I'm in LR 3.whatever about 85% of the time now.

I hardly ever used LR2.

+1 to what Robert said. I too have CS, but for day to day processing of images, I never need anything more than Lightroom. Just downloaded the updated 3.6 last week without a hiccup. Best/most useful piece of software for photography I have ever used.
