Re: What negativity?

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.

Well you are missing a 4th which falls closer to the last response: it's a 20-50mm f/3.4 equivalent costing $1800 and thus is overpriced/pointless.
