What kind of sequencing do you want?
What features/specs do you need?

the Monomachine is the most fluid hardware sequencer/arpeggiator I've used
the Future Reto Revolution/Orb is good for analogue gear
the P3 is nice but not as easy to get into as one would think
the G2 Nord with a touch screen is a potential ultimate step/pattern sequencer ever

I bought a Manikin Schrittmacher a few days ago. I'll let you know what I think of it when it gets here. Although I doubt my insight into the matter is worth much. It'll be the first 'serious' hardware sequencer I've owned.

I see you've got a Vermona DRM MK II. A Europa and a DRM is a delicious combination, I'm told. And you've got plenty of tracks left to sequence other stuff, although it's not polyphonic unless you stack tracks.

Plenty of hype around the Cirklon, but I decided to go with the Schrittmacher because it has a more direct analogue-sequencer approach to it. Hope I made the right choice...
