Re: Will you buy if Nikon went crazy high ISO & not MP?

I don't however believe that better high ISO performance means that nobody wants larger aperture long glass which is what I thought I was discussing here.  It still has its place too.

No - I agree that larger apertures have their place for better DoF control. I was strictly talking of the case where one was looking to carry lighter lens at the expense of the better DoF control - but still needed the extra stop of light (that an f/4 lens would provide vs an f/5.6 lens) and could get that extra stop by an extra stop or two of maximum available clean ISO vs a larger aperture lens.
