Why is it silly? I've given you my reasons and I don't think they are "silly" and mikekelley summed it up very well as well. I might add compression to the mix when it comes to the long end. At 70mm it's still meh...
It has nothing to do with lack of imagination. That's a pretty silly thing to say.
Well, since lighting, framing, subject matter and composition, all the things that make a great image, have nothing to do with the hardware, what else can it be ?
I understand your followup post, after I made my comment, when you say not long enough, not short enough, but then you replace it with 2 lenses so, correct, no 1 lens will be be able to do it all, at least not as well. Frankly, if there was one lens that was wide enough and long enough, we'd all be running around with only 1 lens.
Now, if you lack inspiration visualizing images that lend themselves to 24-70, I can understand that also. We all see the world in different ways. Some are more versatile than others but people tend to stick to certain type/style of shots.... this is not as negative as it sounds "lack of imagination".
