I am reassessing my workflows and thinking more about the ipad pro. I am interested in peoples opinion of the apple pencil and ipad versus microsoft and wacom competitors. Having played around a while in the Apple store and having watched many reviews on youtube, I am concluding the pencil has slightly better tracking (lack of offset & latency) but somewhat worse "feel". The hardness of the pencil tip makes the drawing and writing experience very "glassy", while the softer surface tip seems to provide a more natural feel. Also, the pencil is very noisy--like a jot pro--while the surface pens (i've used all 4 variations) plays more quietly and somehow this translates into a better experience for me.
