Exactly! Nailed it.

In this case, I think the term "serious" is being misused. A better term would be "passionate," in that many of us who are not professionals but are nevertheless obsessed with photography, and want to create images with the maximum level of craft we are capable of. The vast majority of pictures are taken in a far more casual manner - not a damn thing wrong with that either.

Some who are more serious or passionate want the very best.  The OP just wants "good enough".  That's fine for him, but the whining here makes him look childish and more than a little petty.

Some might light pictures of their kids with a nice compact camera. Nothing wrong with that.   I wanted more so got a Canon SLR and an 85mm f/1.2 L lens.  The portraits of my kids that I take with the Canon 85L bring me and my family great joy.   I could not do with less.
