The size appears to be an issue too.

A bit of devils advocate... size is an issue compared to? The 14-35 f2.0 was pretty chunky, and to those who bought it they knew what they were getting, and the compromises that meant.

The way I see it is you have this for when you want to carry a camera and want the quality etc that this lens would afford, irrespective of size. In situations where you need a smaller package you would use a prime or sacrifice some quality such as the aperture.

We can't have it all in one (at least for a reasonable price), but we can have both this and a smaller secondary lens for when size is more important than aperture.

No real disagreement here.  But the size/cost makes me appreciate my pocket full of primes.

Really the best thing about this lens is that it exists.
