I would be glad to have your opinion concerning the Neue Frutiger 1450 released by Monotype. I've also seen that they have published an article : "DIN 1450 – the German standard on legibility of texts" which could be seen as a marketing argument to justify, and sell this 1450 serie. (Maybe I'm wrong?).
I've seen some tough feedbacks on Twitter today by some weel known and hi-skilled type designers :

Wow. A way to get customers to pay for new licenses to a design they’ve already licensed three times, at least! Hole in one, right?— Dan Reynolds (@typeoff) 11 avril 2013
Concerning the article Din 1450 :
So, I would like to have more feedbacks (140 char. is really short), more opinions about this typeface.
What you think about the font itself ? The need of such release ? The legibility issue ?
