No, the most current edition is published in multiple volumes by the
University of Goettingen. This would probably be both too expensive and not
very handy. The most widely used edition is that of Rahlfs, published by
the American Bible Society. That is the one you want rather than
Hendrickson's or Zondervans.

The critical apparatus is not as thorough as the Goettingen edition, but its
is ample.
