Because most or the camera market isn't going to be pros with giant lenses.

55-250mm or 70-300mm are not giant lenses.  A telezoom is by far and away the most common "second lens" for any ILC owner - unless they buy superzoom instead.  (Hint: what were the first lenses available for the Sony E-mount?)

It's also something that the average person would never consider using.

So are most EF and EF-S lenses.  People buy on what they think they might do rather than what they really do.

Because they are more established camera companies.

So.....are..... the......others that you're dismissing. They're just as much camera manufacturers as the others.

The key word is "established" -- both in dealer share and mind share.

Also, some knowledge of human nature. People don't like big clunky things when they can get similar functionality from smaller gear.

Hmm, then why are phones getting bigger?
