I can understand that, Will. I can assure you that the build, feel, AF speed, function, etc, are all top notch. The one thing left is image quality, and that has both objective (eg resolution) and subjective (eg overall contrast, bokeh) components. That's why I shared the RAW files for people to process and decide whether they feel enthusiastic or not. I do feel enthusiastic about the lens, but I don't write reviews with the enthusiasm of a Steve Huff, etc.
