Default Ergo Mouse?

Anyone have any recommendations for an ergonomic mouse? I'm a CAD Draftsman who is beginning to want a more comfy mouse.

I would reccoment the Logitech MX518. I have used its older brother the MX510, and i was extremely impressed.

I was hoping to find one that is set-up so that my hand would be sideways. That's the natural position of a hand when extended.

natural position of a hand when extended is "vertical"
ie., hanging down...then raise your arm up...notice your thumb is upwards and your pinky on the bottom . Not sure if that's the same as your "sideways" lol

pronation...

the least amount of twisting the hand needs to do the better...I would love to use these, but may find them a bit odd at first...also I am poor

I've got the evolution vertical. It is pretty nice, but the mouse isn't as steady. I find it difficult to make the same subtle, controlled movements that I can make easily on a traditional mouse. I would definitely recommend trying these vertical mice before you buy one of them. I dont regret buying it, but it isnt as great as I had hoped it would be, especially for vector drawing, etc.
