% penetration will have just as big an increase in damage no matter how much damage you have to penetrate with. The reason you don't get it right after sorc shoes is that the game calculates flat penetration then % penetration.

Lets say you're fighting Annie mid as Malz. Annie has 30 base magic resist which doesn't scale with level. You have the sorc shoes, which makes her magic resist effectivley 10. Getting a void staff next would lower her magic resist to effectively 6 (this is barring runes/masteries btw). This is barley a 5% increase in damage. If you were to rush a rabadon's instead (which some people still don't like), you would have 182 extra AP, which is a much bigger increase in damage (albeit for a more expensive item)

Idk some AP carries benefit alot more from mpen than AP unless they reach certain amounts. Morde for example, heck maybe even elise i dont play her but full dmg from % based skills just at base dmg is alot more than the bonus from AP without mpen
