Take a few steps back is NOT the same.

No, you're not. Backing up (if you can) gives a different perspective, framing, fore- and background. It is not the same as shooting with the shorter focal length.

Just as getting closer is not the same as using longer focal length.

What we're talking about is what virtually everyone has said. You pay your money and take your choice. Some prefer the wider zoom and USM, others the longer tele and STM. There is no right answer, just what is one's personal preferrence.

IMHO, YMMV.
