Only interpolated or fake step is the 3200 (on Kana), which takes the already bad 1600 (3200) and interpolates it.

Confusing? Yes, though I agree that both the Kana and Kinzu should be limited to 800 and 1600 (Same registry) respectively.

YOU MEAN kinzu = 800dpi and kana = 1600dpi

No, I mean Kana's 800 step is = the Kinzu's 1600 in terms of cursor fidelity.

Both mice will track respectively fine till 1600 DPI (Kinzu) and 800 DPI (Kana) Max IPS is of course lower on the Kinzu. Hardware trade off of speed and resolution.

All fancy info but would you be able to answer my questions in the last page? :/

If you're playing at 400 dpi the Kana is probably the better option, though I don't know the exact max speed you can expect.

Is it safe to get the Kinzu? Did they fix the sensor issues?

The width of the Kinzu and Kana are both exactly the same 64mm but the length of are different, 124mm vs 114mm. Is the 7 mm a huge difference? I tried the Sensei and it was too big for me. I want to get either the Kinzu or the Kana. I would rather get the smaller mouse but I love how the Kana looks and the colors it comes in. I use a claw grip and use a razer imperator. I click literally to the left of the scroll wheel right where it starts. I currently use a logitech g9x without the shell.

Edit: I check wiki but I just want to double check. The Kana and Kinzu use the same sensor correct? The only real different is the size? Off top but do you guys know if they fixed the Zowie Mico sensor issue?

Same Sensor, different Lens, Kana has half the CPI of the Kinzu, but twice the malfunction Speed, and imo both are nearly the same to grip,

altough i find Kana more comfortable because its side go more |__|, instead of \__/ on the Kinzu.

I bought a Kinzu V2 Pro, it was horrible. The tracking felt very unprecise, the scrollwheel was very flimsy and it measured very bad in every way. The pollingrate was very uneven.
