Why fear m43? Nothing to fear but fear itself?

Your subject is interesting:  “Fear is the path to the dark side…fear leads to anger…anger leads to hate…hate leads to suffering.”

The posts you question do seem to at very least express fear if not hate of m43.

Why do people fear a format?  I guess that leads to anger and hate of the format.

How do you stop people who fear you?  Tell them it will be ok, m43 is unlikely to kill of their favourite format.  Tell them not to be afraid.

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.

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.
