Considering we have:

sensors with incredible iso performances compared to films

in camera +- 5 stop VR

Auto gain viewfinder

I can only see a shallower depht of field when used wide open as great advantage

at the expense of weight and $$$ ( for the same level of quality)

Do I miss something ?

Yes.  You missed something.

VR does zero to stop action.

High ISO noise performance doesn't help OSPDAF work in low light.
