Default Precise mouse...

I need help picking out a good mouse. I want one that is very precise and comfortable. I'll be doing ALOT of photoshop work with it. Right now I'm using a Logitech MX518, and I like it, but I need something a little more comfy.

Logitech G9 or G5. I really like both. The G5 is better for gaming in my opinion, but the G9 has lots of features you might find useful for photoshop. The G5 has 2000 DPI and the G9 has 3200 DPI. I know I'm right about the DPI on the G5, but I could be a little off on the G9's DPI.

They also have these cool pads that you use with a special pen. The really good ones are pretty expensive, but I hear it doesn't get much than that for photoshop.

Have you checked out the Revolution? It's along the same lines, and has ALL the bells and whistles.

Surprised I didn't recommend Razer? If you are looking for something along the lines of the MX, Razers wouldn't fit. But the new Boomslang does look sexy...

+1 for the G5. Although even with all of the 4.5g weights its still not heavy enough.
