And no, I've never even shot hummingbirds, but we've got plenty of other fast birds with which the 1/8000 could come in handy.

So far not a single person in this thread has posted a photo to illustrate the importance of having a 1/8000th second shutter, which pretty much illustrates how rarely it is used or needed.

In fact, a Hummingbird photo just won a recent challenge coming in 1st place, despite the fact that the shutter speed was only 1/1300th of a second.
