Here is an example. The golden hour where the light is beautiful with your subject pushing 300mm?  Guess what, that f6.7 lens

The Panny version (which he no doubt has since he shoots the G5) is f/5.6 ... I agree that the Oly lens is hopeless ... but the Panny lens is a bit better ... still, it is the contrast detect AF that makes it hopeless as light intensity drops ...

Not saying people can't pull a few out, but giant killer it's not.

And no one has said it is. As Trevor suggested ... it is the equivalent of going out go-karting ... a little fun and nothing too serious ...

Now this is the attitude that gets me fired up.

It's entirely possible to be quite serious about BiF, but not invest in expensive glass. There's several reasons for that, either economical, or the bulk of fast glass, or just the boring realisation that the benefits of fast glass are not worth it if you aren't needing it for professional reasons.

Skill in the field is more important than the camera used. I find the assessment of a person's level of commitment, based on their choice of camera, to be entirely unjustified.
