I feel logitech especially is guilty of this through the years with various releases.
The type of gamer who buys large heavy palm mice with weight adjustment for further heft and a free spinning scroll wheel are the type of gamers who would post on these forums about how happy they are with their 9500/9800 laser mice and how they don't notice the accel. If they were happy with their G500s or whatever they had before, why would they be interested in this? This targeted audience was already happy with their mouse.
But the G502 is released with a sensor that on paper seems pretty much too good to be true but it is wasted on the section of people who are interested in this mouse as a whole. So you get the other side of the audience who is looking for specialized equipment
to play their favorite games with but that sensor they're interested in is in that big heavy gimmicky toy so they probably aren't going to buy it.
A G100s with this new sensor might be a good idea Logitech.
No solid metal, free spinning scroll wheel that serves no purpose.
No weight system because adding weight to an object that you are quickly lifting and swiping around for hours is completely stupid. Do you see baseball players keep the donut weights on their bats when they step up to the plate? No, they take them off. I'm certain those who think they want a 150g mouse are just confused from some placebo gaming session where they did well.
Maybe some small side buttons that stay out of the way (look at the BST mouse shell, it did side buttons well on a small similarly shaped mouse).
See a mouse on the market that would compete with this? I don't. So far Zowie seems to be the only company looking to sell equipment and not toys.
