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

wow interesting with a post whos very topic is a display of lack of knowledge. Sorry mate but low light is for many the least reason to use fast lenses.

And Especially in a m43 forum the post is fantastically misplaced, if anything there is a growing demand for fast lenses, and guess what most of them will be used in fuxll daylight as well, get the point ?
