White telephoto lens envy....

I am just not getting it.

In another thread it became incresingly clear that what some people want for u 4/3 is a giant white 70-200mm constant f/2.8 lens that costs $4,000.00.

why the fascination with such zooms?

U 4/3 is all about comapctness, portability, stealth and passable IQ.

Most people are not making a living with these cameras so why the obsession with big fast zooms?

If you want or need fast, just get a compact prime.

Leica, Canon, Fed, Zorki, Oly, Pentax, et. al made tons of 'em.

Can't people be bothered to change a lens?

Sure there are the 14-140/150mm zooms but they really don't sell all that well-they are not what most of us are looking for.

Are the zoom freaks really SLR reprobates that will never "get" the u 4/3 zeitgeist?
