[insert expletive here] By his measure, the Nikkor 200mm f/2 VR is not really needed on Nikon's ultra-sensitive DSLR bodies. Put that VR in a 200mm f/6.3 and that's all those Nikon folks really need. Own anything faster and they are snobs.

How many of you are now going to toss your f/2 and faster "snob" lenses? Apparently you don't really need them.

This may be a common feeling amongst those who are used to taking snapshots with a point and shoot and suddenly find themselves with Oly's nice IBIS / great high ISO.  They don't understand composition, DoF, etc. but will likely learn the craft of photography over time if they keep at it.
