I think people expected a bag of primes from this zoom. And to be lightweight. And small.

Well I think the SLRGEAR review is unduly harsh when you look at their own graphs. Yes the lens is weak in the corners at 24mm, but if you compare it in the following graphs at 35mm and 50mm and f/4 with the corresponding primes it actually does very well.

If the expected 16-35mm f/4 does well at the wide end then these two lenses will make a good complementary combination.
