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)

That's enough reason for me to have lens like 105 1.4, also astro is another reason I want a lens as fast as possible, so I have a Sigma 14/1.8 Art. if they make 14/1.4, I will buy one for sure, yes, it won't be small and cheap but  I am willing to put up with that.
