Here are some old (2-3 years) photos and reviews. So, maybe things have changed a bit.
This one is from penaddict. Broad nib.

These two are gourmetpens' pictures. Medium nib.

And a video review of the pen by SBRE Brown.
It seems that the nib performance isn't consistent, especially when it comes to fine nibs. Some fine nibs write finer and drier, others write broader and wetter. At least that's the impression I have after reading around the Internet. Mediums and broads are probably more consistent.

Yes, I think that ink choice is quite important for this pen. Also, this review: http://www.penaddict.com/blog/2013/12/9/levenger-l-tech-stealth-fountain-pen-review, suggests that the nib is exchangeble with the TWSBI nib.

That depends on your colour preference a bit though. I have a silver one with F nib in use with Iroshizuku Asa-Gao, that works perfect for me. The pen seems to be a very wet writer, so make your choice not on a to wet ink. I joined also on this one and I've taken a stealth one with "B" nib. I intend to use it with the Diamine Jet Black ink, The complete black pen with the perfect black ink.
