If your mouse hardware really lags your CPU that much, maybe it's time to consider a new CPU. o_O

haha ya it might lag your CPU if your CPU is a 8088.  I use my sensitivity
buttons on the fly too.  Its very useful not only in games but in Photoshop and
fireworks where there is some small detailing that needs to be done.  I do like how the buttons are not in the middle of mouse on this model.  I sometimes
hit the buttons by accident on my G5.

I also adjust my G9's sensitivity based on what program or game I am running. They all have different settings within them and it's just easier to press a button to compensate. Also, it's nice to have when you're getting ready to snipe someone from afar and you want to be as steady as possible.... just crank it down all the way down. NOT a gimmick. A useful tool for someone that actually utilizes all their computer hardware for the best performance.

Norm,

How's the scroll action of this new comer when compared to the G9 or G9x?  Same same?

I use the on-the-fly sensitivity switching too. Especially games that have short and long range action. Take UTIII or TF2. Say you are a sniper in tf2. You can drop your sensitivity for sniping, and then jump it back up for melee/close action work. Same with UTIII.

 

And I am not sure what CPU you have that your mouse drivers use 10% of your cpu...

I use On The Fly sensitivity quite a bit on my OCZ Behemoth Mouse. 

"Changing sensitivity on the fly--honestly, who does that" Have you ever asked someone if they do it? So far, my experience with Logitech has been great.
