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)

You are being incredibly short sighted/narrow minded.

Here's one example. Have a look at this. How about real time aurora footage.

Footage made up of individual photos at 1/25 sec, ISO 40,000, f/1.4....

Every stop of light gathering ability was needed in order for that to work.
