So, following on from that, you do realize that people who are serious about photography use telephoto lenses (a lot)?

Where did you get the idea that I did not think that?

So it was only you're initial premise ("if you have to use telephoto lens, you are serious about what you are shooting") that was wrong.

No it is not wrong. unlike wide angle, you do not need to a telephoto lens to merely capture something  if you need telephoto it is because you want to capture it well, with as much detail as possible. Thus the statement "if you have to use telephoto lens, you are serious about what you are shooting" is correct.

So, following your logic, what do you make of everyone who uses telephoto on m4/3s? Teles are an extremely common lens on this forum.

Are they serious about what they are shooting?

Do they get significant size and weight and cost benefits over most DSLRs?'s gear's gear list
