Re: Do we still "need" fast lenses ?

Not every photographer has the same needs, but for me, I use fast aperture to freeze action in low light circumstances.  The ISO range of the D610 wouldn't allow me to capture this picture @F4 w/o pushing in post. I tend to be more limited by subject movement than camera movement, though I welcome VR/IBIS.
