Re: Do we still "need" fast lenses ?

Thanks Jim,

Although my qustion was badly posed, you nailed exacly what I wanted to say.

I dont't think fast lenses are unusefull I always loved (and owned many) them.

The typical set of zooms (14-24,24-70, 70-200) were the target of my question (although the first two can be considered fast zooms but not fast lenses).

I tested for just few minutes the z7 and love it (although I have a litle doubt), my only concern is on the actual lens lineup and the scheduled Nikon program.

the 24-70 f4 is nice but I much prefer a range like 24-105 or the 24-120 f4 I own, there will be a native 70-200 f2.8 but no lighter and cheeper f4, years ago I would had no doubt on choosing the faster ones. Today I'm not ... the problem is that Nikon won't have the lenses I'd like for some years, and buying F series to mount on The Z7 does not seems the best option ... and being Nikonist for more than 43 years would make difficult to consider Sony ...
