Re: Fast sensors have made fast lenses obsolete

I disagree with the statement that they've made fast lenses obsolete, but it has made them let important. Putting the obvious DOF objection aside, there are still times when I want the light a fast lens can give me even with the best crop sensors. If you can get me a sensor that performs at ISO 51200 like the E-PL5/NEX does at ISO 3200 I'll be bothered less by a lack of fast lenses- but it'll never happen, at least not without a FF or larger sensor.
