Do you know people with boats, snowmobiles, motorcycles, ATVs or other expensive toys ? I wouldn't spend $18K on a lens, because I don't do photography seriously enough to warrant it. But some do.

Exactly...I'd rather be out in the woods with an 800mm f/5.6 than on a boat fishing and drinking light beer. And I wouldn't be making money either way.

And I paid less for my car (used) than I did for my 400mm f/2.8.
