Yes, you are correct I think. The micro motors do seem to be the "cheap" option but there doesn't seem to be much reliability data about them yet. It will be interesting to see how they hold up in the 1.4 primes if, as some have suggested, they are being highly loaded by the greater inertias. Not sure if that's the case myself as the focusing groups look to be the smaller elements.
