Whoa! Don't judge until you've used the lens with all the tools intended to be used with it. Do your Raw conversion in Digital Photo Professional while the Digital Lens Optimization function is turned on. It'll make a HUGE difference with WA lenses. With zooms, it corrects for geometric distortion, CA, vignetting, etc. at every focal length and every aperture. With a prime, it's a piece of cake.

You can add DLO modules to LR and DxO Optics Pro comes with it included.

People using primes to get speed make sense to me, but even primes need a lot of help at wide open apertures. Zooms need as much or more help at their wide ends. Too many people are not realizing the capabilities of their lenses.
