Nex may not need faster than F4 lenses!

According to an article by the respected DXOMark labs, how much light you gain from going faster than F4 depends a lot on sensor design, and most of the extra light is lost. I am not a lens expert, but what do you think?

The article at DXOMark is found under "reviews", and called "F-stop blues". Of course, depth of field is affected. The article also claims that some manufacturers fudge the ISO at the widest f stops.
