What negativity?
3

You might be perceiving a lot of "negativity" about this lens, but I don't see it that way.

I see three responses:

  1. Great lens, and I want one
  2. Great lens, but it isn't for me
  3. Great lens, but it was a mistake to make it rather than some other lens I want

The one response you just don't see is "not good enough, it is a piece of junk." That is a response that I would personally consider negative, even if deserved.

I suppose you could consider that third group as being negative, but they really are a small minority of M4/3 users. They are simply expressing their frustration about a product they won't buy because it fails to meet their needs or their budget,

And these same responses are true for every lens created for every system.

Most of us are thrilled to see yet another wonderful lens added to a long list of wonderful lenses. And even though some of us won't want them it, or be able to afford it we still are glad it exists.

Someone will want it and buy it, and it's existence makes the entire system more appealing.
