I'm using Zend 6 now, and couldn't be happier. Definitely the best version of Zend yet! More responsive, and better looking UI. Nice integration (as you'd expect) with Zend Framework. Would definitely recommend. I was thinking at one stage Komodo, and it's a viable alternative, but I've gotta recommend Zend 6.

Sweet!  Zend 6 looks like it might be worth the money. Am I reading it 
right that it is $399? http://www.zend.com/en/store/software/studio/
