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

Look at it the other way. I already have a cheap and very sharp telelens. But its widest aperture is F/4,0.

Since I don't care when ISO reach 3,600, will I pay a thousand of dollars to get a heavy and faster telezoom with razor thin DOF when its diaphragm is fully open? Probably not.

I'm not suggesting that such a lens is useless. I'm just saying that if I was unable to take picture above 800 ISO, I would desperately need faster lenses.
