No, fast lenses enable you to restrict depth of field. And high ISO plus fast lens gives you the capabilty of working in lower light than high ISO plus slow lens.

Here is a picture of my black cat hiding in an unlit coal cellar, 60 seconds at f2. Imagine how much better it would have been had I had an f0.95 lens.

You must really have a great sense of (involuntary) humor.

That's the piece of conviction everybody was looking for

Wow! I borrowed a f0.95 lens and took a picture in my cellar. Turns out it was so dark that I couldnt see it wasn't my black cat Edward but my my green pet praying mantis Chardonnay down there.

Here she is - thank goodness for high speed lenses, just shows you what a difference a couple of stops can make!

Chardonnay looks great. Must just have just eaten a husband. You know those two stops?

In addition to a nominal 25600 ISO the E-M5 offers also some 4 stops of IBIS. Perhaps you should try one, EVEN with a moderate aperture.

Doesn't Edward consider Chardonnay food?
