I think the disappointment is still warranted. Canon didn't even take advantage of the added space from the deleted mirror box or the big wide mount. It's basically the old EF STM lens with a new element and control ring for 2x the money. I get the point of the lens but Canon seemed to put zero effort into it.

At least it focuses reliably, unlike Sony's.

I think they understand after 30 years of having a cheap 50mm f1.8 how important it is for the system. They could have made a nicer 50mm and charged $600 for it, but that's not the market segment they want. It's fine for people to be disappointed, but I understand where Canon is coming from and their goal for this lens.

Personally, I love the tiny size. I mean you can be m4/3 size class with this thing:
