Smaller buyer pool, yes, some people won't touch them, and perceived lower value. I don't have an R8 but do have a 335.

You can't see, feel or hear the laminated board, so to ask how someone likes it is odd.

I thought I bought one and accepted what I was getting because it was used and at a great price but it turned out to be a late 2011 with the single piece boards. Much later on I was at a guitar shop having this 2012 laminated boards discussion and the owner mentioned the initial outrage that surrounded the lamination shenanigans died down pretty quick and hasn't been an issue for most people. When I was researching and getting ready to buy in 2012/13 I thought it was going to be the end of the world with how serious the online forums made it sound. I'd still be slightly turned off but most people I've brought this up with didn't even know it was a thing.
