If I get a preproduction lens for a review, I give direct and constructive feedback to the manufacturer in order to give him a chance for optimizations (if necessary) before discussing issues with that particular sample in a frequently visited forum like dpreview.

I think some things about the attitude of the "reviewer" cleared up during this discussion. The review is not objective and its generalized "DON’T BUY IT" is derived from a particular sample requested explicitly by the reviewer without contacting the manufacturer about issues determined.

First off this lens is NOT a pre-production lens  and it was the finalized version when it was released to me. It is a concept lens nonetheless.  Very minor changes have been made since my version, if at all any. But compared to Stevehuff's version, I'm sure there are some tweaks here and there. SLR Magic can confirm that.

I think I've given more than enough reason in the review to state not buy the lens.
