I have still not come into contact with the new ms20 mini yet so wouldn't know. Although AG did say on his vids that it wasn't a huge deal and thats coming from a person who thinks certain ways of doing things are a big deal.
It really seems to depend entirely on personal preference and/or whether you have big hands. I personally don't have any trouble with it (in fact, it's kinda nice to be able to easily cover a wider range - on full-size keys, anything over an octave interval is stretching it for me,) but I've heard a few people complaining about it...who knows. As far as I'm concerned, if it keeps the price down I have no problem with it.

Any well known examples of this instrument you can point to?
a nice all-Odyssey multitracked demo of the third-revision Odyssey with the ARP 4075 filter. This
is a MkI Odyssey with the 12dB/oct. filter. And this
is a MkII with the Moog-patent-infringing 4035 filter. Wonder which filters the repro will include...?
Finally, this is all very curious. Why do you think Korg are doing this; and why have the announced it now in particular?
Obviously they're doing this because they've had great success with new analog products. Why the Odyssey in particular, I'm not sure - possibly because it was the second most popular early all-in-one monosynth, after the Minimoog. As for why announce it now? Easy - because after Roland's yawping about how VA Is The Future, Korg gets to come along and tell all the bummed-out analog junkies who were hoping that this would finally
be the year Roland got back into analog "oh hey, guys, guess what, we're still doing this analog thing!" and decisively answer the naysayers who were claiming that the MS-20 Mini was only an anniversary thing and we wouldn't see any further development by Korg...
