Which Wacom Tablet?

Before I ask this question I will give a little info on my "photography profile". I am not a professional and do not need this for work. I shoot with a Nikon D200 (soon to upgrade) and good lens'. I consider myself an advanced amateuer as well as very technical. The last item is that as a whole I do not like post processing (I try to take the picture I want upfront and keep the post down to cropping and MAYBE some contratrast and brightness changes). I would like to "play" with a tablet to try some more creative items and maybe realize the power of more post porcesssing. I am using Photoshop CS5 and may also start with Lightroom.

I just went to the Wacom website and then to the Staples website to see what they had in stock. There are many different tablets avaiable and I do not know which one I want/need.

I would like a medium or large one. The small ones I have seen were a little challenging to work with.

Even narrowing down the size to medium (large were too expensive) there were still several options.

I would like to ask the group these questions

1) Which tablet do you use / do you like it What do you like/dislike?

2) Knowing how the tablets work / If you were to buy a new one today which one would you buy (and why)

3) What are the REAL differences in in the features (e.g. is there a real difference between 1024 levels of sensitivity for pen pressure and 2048 levels)

Thank you.

Nikon D200
