In a current large thread, one of our own wrote this:

"Big aperture lenses for m4/3 are not really needed because of improvement in sensitivity - and IBIS in Oly. [S]o again, a form of snobbishness."

[insert expletive here] By his measure, the Nikkor 200mm f/2 VR is not really needed on Nikon's ultra-sensitive DSLR bodies. Put that VR in a 200mm f/6.3 and that's all those Nikon folks really need. Own anything faster and they are snobs.

How many of you are now going to toss your f/2 and faster "snob" lenses? Apparently you don't really need them.
