Yes, this is coming from the very low lift of distance for the mouse. The sensor itself is close to perfection, but tilting the mouse or moving it fast makes the sensor move away a bit from the surface. This causes big problems on some mousepads and especially if you have some thicker mousefeet. It is a bit sad, since the effect will be that you loose all awesomeness of the sensor and it starts malfunction just like a mouse with a bad sensor would do.
Personally I use it with rather thin mouse skates and a hard mousepad to get rid of lift off problems. Then it works perfectly for me. I also have gotten more a bit used to not lifting or tilting it during fast swipes.
The sensor itself is making this mouse by far the best and most responsive mouse I have ever used. The shape and weight is also perfect for me. It's really sad that some things like the nonadjustable low LOD and the thick cable causes problems in this otherwise very good mouse.
