Agree with your comments. As an ex-pro who started out when photojournalism was the prevailing influence several decades back, I quit in frustration when the industry shoved digital down our throats. Those first and second generation digi cameras were truly awful. Looking at the excellent W Eugene Smith essay, I would guess all those shots were taken on his Leica using just 35mm & 50mm lenses. An object lesson for those who feel under-equipped without two or three zoom lenses on board.
