This Friday Panasonic officially announced the 10-25 f/1.7 with all the details about prices, weight and so on.

A great new lens for our MFT system with an quite unique range and incredible fast for a zoom. DPR got 2 articles out on the front page to give attention to this launch.

Press release; https://www.dpreview.com/news/2097346933/panasonic-s-versatile-leica-dg-vario-summilux-10-25mm-f1-7-lens-available-in-july

The articles are just fine, also the video that is done. The problem is the reactions under the articles. Some people are going savage about it. The seize, the price, small sensor. And so on.

Obviously DPR isn't going to do anything about it because it generates a huge amount of clicks.

But this negativity is bad for our system we use and would like to continue to use.

What can we (as a group or as individuals) do about it?

Edit; to make it more clear, this topic isn't made to have the discussion in the 2 articles all over again. The clear question is nog bold.

Nothing. Absolutely nothing. Why should we do anything about it? It is not our problem.

I waste too much time worrying about my clients. Why should I weep and cry over the nasty things people say about sombody else's product.

Just buy the flipping camera equipment that suits you best and enjoy using it. Worry about taking great pictures.

Who really takes any notice of the pathetic "fans" of any particular brand? Yes the M43 fans are just as pathetic as the Sony, Canon and Nikon fans. Brand fans are pathetic creatures, full stop.

I had no problem about buying some Nikon gear to fill in some holes where my M43 did not cut it. I now have a more powerful set of gear to make photographs.

I will be keeping my M43 gear because it does things my FF gear does not do well.
