I have a Lamy 2000 and Lamy Studio with gold M nib. They are very wet and I love them for it. But I have found that I need to match them with the right ink. I love DeAtramentis Aubergine, but if I use it in one of the pens, then I have problems .
I have fairly good luck with Pilot Iroshizuku inks - although many consider them wet inks. Also, L'Artisan Pastelier Callifolio inks (made in France) and some Rohrer & Klinger inks, such as Alt-Bordeaux work well.
Some inks take forever to dry (i.e. Noodlers, some Montblancs, etc) and others, when used in a wet pen, leave a residue causing smearing (i.e. GvFC Violet Blue and many J. Herbin inks). I recently picked up a bottle of J. Herbin Rose Cyclamen and decided to try it in my Lamy Studio. The ink almost gushed from the nib, took almost 2 minutes to dry and left a smeary mess even after several hours. It got flushed from the pen fairly quickly.
And it will also depend upon the paper you are going to write on. If I am going to write a letter on Tomoe River paper, I will pick another pen. But if I am writing in my MD Midori journal, I don't have too much problem. If you are using Rhodia/Clairfontaine paper, be sure to find a quick drying ink.
Right now, the Lamy 2000 is filled with Pilot Iroshizuku Tsuyu-Kusa and the Lamy Studio is filled with Rohrer & Klingner Smaragdgren. They are working fairly well.
Oops - almost forgot. If the wetness is untenable, you could send the pen to a nibmeister for adjustment. Mike Matsuyama does a fantastic job.
