NO! I just came back from the Apple store. 27" Imac on one side of the isle and the 30" cinema on the other. I was able to compare pictures at the same time on both screens and got some good help from a salesman and serious photographer. It's ok for amatuer stuff, but if you are a real pro I would not and I will not buy one for professional work. I could see how the glossy screen effects the images, not just reflections, which stinks too.
