Like?
Perhaps in a shorter zoom to about 130mm

I disagree. A decent telephoto, say 70-200 in FF realm, is a bit long in Crop country. The same range & aperture values can only be obtained thru third parties.

I think we are both right. My reasoning was that e.g. a 70 - 200 mm f/2.8 would be the same size regardless of whether for FF or crop. Your view was that for crop you would be happy with something like a 50 - 130 mm lens that could then be f/2.8 with less bulk than the 70-200. That is of course correct.

So I admit that you and the OP do have a point.
