the choice is about how fast the lens should be

f1.2 vs. f1.8 can mean a great deal.

A desire for lens speed and wide aperture depends on how much low light shooting one does and how much bokeh laden imagery one prefers. I like shooting in available light, and a lot interiors and at night, so wide apertures are important for me.

Ok. your choice makes sense. However, one must balance 1 stop opening vs lens cost and size. (and keep in mind -as others pointed out in other posts- that modern sensors make 1 stop less critical than it used to be)

Maybe so, but keeping ISO as low as possible helps keep noise down. Maybe at some point we'll have completely noise free shots at ISO 12,000, but I'd suspect no time soon.
