I really like the size though. For some people it is not as important. I will wait and see what the new version(Hopefully) is like and then purchase

If they do a "Mark II" version with fixes, I would look into it.
I'd have to see good reviews first.

It may be that the root problem is not the lens but that the smaller (lighter) lens is more susceptible to the shutter vibration.
This places responsibility for the fix in the camera body.

I am always open to smaller/lighter lens options.
