I want to get a full spectrum of Photoshop products but without duplicating them. Is CS5 Extended + Lightroom 3 the correct combination ?

What kind of work are you doing?

I find that Lightroom is great when you have a ton of images to process (Exposure & Color adjustments) and Export, but still need jump over to Photoshop to fix things (people blinking, removing unwanted elements) or to be creative.
(You can quickly jump into PS from LR).

Lightroom is also a great tool for organizing photos into catalogs and tagging locations/dates/people.
