I'm probably going to wait until the Kinzu hits Amazon although I'm half tempted to stick with the G100s because it really is an excellent mouse.

I traded the g100s for a kinzuv2 and I regret every day about that, I did it for testing purposes though lol. Logitech has taken the lead technology wise these days. I'm waiting to see if they release a g103s. Saved money for that.

edit: I think the g103 will be like the g402 without the gyro. And It will be an amazing little mouse.

The G402 is already using the same sensor as the G100s

Yes but the g402 signal is less processed and that causes a more "pure" or "raw".feeling.

Less than the G100s? Not sure why they even felt the need to process it.

More post proccessing for more surface compatibility .> +lag. And don't forget that the g100s is only 500hz. Both things make it less responsive and less raw than a hyperion.

For me it's because of the shape. I just hope the coating isn't that crappy.

.

Did you try the g100s ? I used to like the little shape of the kinzu but when I tried the g1 I just fell in love, if you like the kinzu shape I totally recommend you to give the g100s a shot !.

ive tried g100s in a shop long time ago and I sure did like the shape but still prefer the kinzu's shape

also I remember not liking the switches iirc

Yes that's a big downside, I had to change them for omroms, I couldn't tap properly with the stock ones. Gl with the kinzu v3, I just hope steelseries at least delivers 60% of what you're paying for it.

I liked the v1 switches more. These aren't outright bad but the clicks neither feel or sound as defined. Generally I don't pay much attention to switches beyond actuation force though. Also, with this mouse I found my hand really doesn't like glossy coating, so the slight lack of grip might have something to do with it.

There's something about the shape, the feel of the sensor or both that I could never get used to with g100s but pretty sure I'm in the minority here. I'd say Kinzu v3 isn't worth it unless you absolutely love the shape and were just waiting for them to bump the performance up to not-office-mouse level.
