It's hard to compare the L2k and VP with the Falcon, the Falcon nib is meant for something different with the amount of springiness it has. I'd put the Lamy 2000 above the VP based on my own experience. My VP will dry up too readily whereas my Lamys write instantly even if I've not used them for weeks. One of my 2000s is a 1980s model I picked up at a car boot sales for £3 and it writes perfectly every time. Bargain of the century. I'd choose the Falcon over the VP as well because it's more fun.
