Adobe Acrobat replacement for Mac OS X

Seeking Adobe Acrobat replacement for Mac OS X. I have Acrobat 8 Standard for Windows, which has served me well. But Adobe only offers their "Pro" version for Mac, which costs way more than I want to spend ($450), and it's also more than I need. So I'm looking for an alternative; free is great, but willing to pay for a solid software package. Intuitive and easy-to-use is a big plus. List of features I tend to rely on most in the "More Inside" section.

The features I typically use most include:
• Metadata removal
• File size reduction
• Add/delete/replace/extract individual pages or page ranges
• "Typewriter" tool for adding text to non-form-based PDFs
Redaction would also be helpful but not a dealbreaker. Thanks for your assistance.
