Kirk's site-

He makes fun of the supposed need or desire to be able to shoot available light photographs, but photographers were doing that with f/1.4 lenses and fast (albeit grainy) film decades before the introduction of digital cameras.

Yet when I first got an E-PM1 withi the kit lens, it was NOT good enough to take an available light photo in regular incandescent lighting. Uprgrading to an E-M5 and the Panasonic 25mm f/1.4 lens opened up a whole new world of photography.

I think you've misread his comments about available light shooting. He's noting that the new ability to shoot at ISO 3200 and higher has led some photographers to accept ugly available light rather than do the extra work of providing attractive light.

As a conference & meetings shooter, I do enjoy the ability to shoot without flash sometimes, in rooms where the light is diffuse and not directly overhead. But, at other times, I go back to using flash. Not because there isn't enough light, but because it's just godawful ugly.
