Possibly. But in STFs there's also four other ships pumping energy into shields so, in my escort, I can make attack runs on the unshielded - or less shielded - sides. And even then, in solo content, I don't notice a major difference. It could just be my perception of it, but I still contend that the quad cannons are a viable - albeit not optimal - weapon for endgame, at least on the PVE side. (I don't PVP, so I can't comment, nor am I particularly concerned, about its viability in PVP.)
And in the end, it's my ship. I'll use 'em if I want to, gorrammit. :p
