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

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?

My guess is that many FF camera users have a nagging insecurity that a smaller and generally less expensive format can perform so well which makes their investment look silly.

And they are probably irritated that Pany and Oly keep releasing great lenses more regularly than Nikon, Canon or Sony.

Just ignore them. Enjoy your gear.
