I wonder if Z50-style nibs will fit this pen.

I rather like that vid. It's very, err, Lamy (from a pen and design perspective, not latest marketing).

Looks interesting. I look forward to seeing it in person to see if I like the minimalist lines in the metal.

According to owners they do.

I tend to agree. Looks a bit bulky and clumsy.

Nib looks small in proportion to the pen size

 Your 2000 looks nice n' shiney.

 

 Is that persona made of makrolon? Is is lighter than other personas/imporiums?

I'm tempted to add to my Lamy collection - not seen anyone in the UK selling it yet though.

Thanks for the comparison, Christof. Very useful. The Aion looks bigger than I expected but not unpleasing, especially at the business end.

Do you have a photo comparing unposted sizes?

My 2000 is one of the very first generation and has seen lost of use in his life.
Yes, the barrel of my Persona is Makrolon and is much lighter. It's the only Persona which is usuable for me.

 That's cool. 

 

 This may be heresy....

 

 But I like the Imporium/Persona more than the 2000.

 

 Nonetheless...

 

 I love your understated pens.

 

 Please bring 'em on!  :P

Me too, which is why I have an Improium, but presently do not have a 2K (I will in time)

I had an immediate negative reaction to the 2K when I handled one in person at a pen show.  Just capping/uncapping it was enough to turn me off.

 

And at the same show, I came across a used Persona, a model I was unfamiliar with at the time but is very appealing.  It had a cosmetically defective cap and was on sale for $175.  I passed on it and now I regret it.
