Re: Why do you buy fast lenses/cameras?

I voted half and half, but it varies somewhat by lens ... with a wide/normal, I'm more interested in speed for low light than for shallow DOF. With a portrait lens, it's primarily for shallow DOF (I shoot casual candids where I'm not controlling the background). And with my 70-200, it's primarily for shutter speed, but I usually appreciate the shallow DOF.
