Sounds like you've got all the info you need. I havent' really tested but don't see much of a loss in wide open (f1.8 or 2.8) any loss is more than made up with the benifit of lower ISO. This pic is 30 sec f2.8 ISO 800 with a 17-55 at 2.8. The light on the center pivit was on for about 1/4 sec after the shutter opened. The cropped pic is a 4 X 6" from a 16 X 20. No noise ruduction of any kind just a decent web pic. These are very small files but not less than half the original quality. And if it weren't for a full moon I would kill to take that 24mm 1.4.
