How do you guys justify the cost of this lens? I am asking out of genuine curiosity. Are you professional photographers?

Just a keen amateur bird photographer. Only live once.

I get that statement.

Keen non pro. I am retired and can afford it and want to have the best I can get for my Olympus system. It is way more expensive than I thought it would be but I have decided to go for it anyway.

I see it no different than someone buying an expensive fancy car when one costing heaps less is just as safe, probably cheaper to run and still gets you where you want to go. I prefer to travel in my Mitsubishi and have the best lens.

Okay, completely understandable.  I do like the car analogy.
