I'm not about to join the debate. It's overly technical for me and I lack the knowledge or interest to chime in.

My fast lenses have always outperformed my slower lenses in general and especially in dim light. However, my fast lenses are typically better overall lenses, so that likely makes a difference as well.

The "why" is only important to me out of curiosity. In practice, I rely on my own experience.

And I am perfectly fine with this, I am just against people making a technical argument ('the AF is faster because the lens lets in more light') if they do not understand the technology.
