    I believe this has already been mentioned in another thread, but with the magic trackpad (or an Apple trackpad in general) the zoom in/out is pretty obvious (scroll up/down).

    To activate the pan or 3D rotate, the gesture is to have two fingers on the trackpad, click (and hold), then lift one finger. With the click +1 finger you can then 3D rotate, or if you hold the control key at the same time you can 2D pan.

    The View Navigation portion of the help discusses it for other types of input devices.

    OS doesn't really support a true Mac experience.. yet.
