Hopefully the offset of older EMR1 pens is because the X2 uses EMR2 - at least that's what I tell myself.! I have tried it myself now and there is definitely an offset with the older pens. As for the X2 pen, I agree everything - I would just prefer it was as heavy and solid feeling as the Dell pen. I just like heavier pens and pencils in non digital art and that translates to digital styli. On a side note - in the non digital world, I just made myself a "Frankenpen" for ink and watercolour drawing with my little A5 sketchbook and its weight is just perfect - matches the weight of my clutch pencil so ideally, my digital stylus would be the same.
