Re: Do we still "need" fast lenses ?

You pretty much nailed it. The only real reason for fast lenses nowadays is bokeh isolation. A secondary reason could be for opening up brighter on dSLR's to help see.  For any other purpose, you generally get better image quality with a slower lens which has fewer/thinner glass elements inside.
