I hated it at first but now I'm getting used to it and like it as my flying fortress cargo hauler.
Got it mostly G5 engineered, with 4 large efficient pulse turrets, 2 medium efficient/1 medium overcharged MC turret and two small long range gimballed cannons. I can haul 400 tons of cargo without having to fear anything in PvE. And it has this flying fortress feeling. Did even some runs in open without getting rekt
The big three can do everything better of course, but I'll self-restrict myself to one ship per type. And I have a Explorer-Conda and a battle-'Vette and no rank for Cutter, so hauling is T-10 territory for me. And it's ok.
