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.

Nikon user. I actually spent$ 3,500 more for one stop with my 200/2.0 VR. Worth it for my use.
