What about the pros like my wife who needs to process hundreds of photos in short time and must get it right from the start not to waste too much time by the computer in PP?

Or hobbyists like myself who uses lenses as tools trying to nail that wow-shot?

According to your posting a mobile phone Camera should settle your needs!

Just my thoughts and opinion on the subject...

Quite a while ago in fact.

However there still are a few people who watch Betamax tapes, listen to records and use a land line so there will always be a few people who refuse to come into the modern world. They hang on to past technologies like it is a winning lottery ticket. They refuse to admit that new technology is better and they refuse to even try it.

High ISO cameras, advanced shooting modes, Photoshop, and image stabilization have all contributed to making fast lenses a thing of the past.

The economics are amazing. A Canon 70-200 f2.8 L IS lens is $2500. The exact same lens in f4 costs $1000. While there might be a few people in the world that can justify spending $1500 for one more stop, the overwhelming majority would laugh at such an idea.
