I don't know if you missed something or not. I don't agree with your view, however. Despite better quality at higher ISOs on cameras from the last couple of years, and despite VR, you are still going to get better IQ (lower noise, more DR) at lower ISOs. So having an extra 2 stops of aperture on a fast lens can still bring meaningful improvement.

If you're happy/satisfied with your camera's IQ with slower lenses that's all that matters.

I totally agree.

I'm literally drooling to get my hands on Nikkor Z 50mm f / 1.2 S
