Anyone in the market for a fast lens (f2.0 or greater) is (or should be) buying that lens for the sake of its maximum aperture and is (or should be) using it wide open most of the time. Otherwise, why bother paying a huge premium for the max aperture?

I want a lens to be fast because I want shallow DOF as a creative option, not because I want to use it most of the time. Period. I'll bet I'm not in the minority.
