I agree with those comments.

Also, you state:

"just that the main people that will gain anything from these lenses are the ones that are shooting often, professionally, and are being paid, as they are the ones where the little bit of extra speed/quality will help them as their photos already look excellent and a good photographer will take good photos with any gear."

That last bit "a good photographer will take good photos with any gear" is canceling out your statement that only the pros will gain from the lens.  If they can take good photos with any gear, then why do they need to spend the money on the more expensive lens?

I do understand your attempt.  It's true, as a beginner, it is far more helpful to learn HOW to shoot before putting money out on upgrading your lens.  But, you take it way beyond that and imply that no one really needs the expensive lenses at all.

You also ignore the other major reason for buying a more expensive lens:  IQ.
