Re: Why do you buy fast lenses/cameras?

As I said in a recent comment "I just like fast glass, and owning a 1.2 makes me feel good."

But low light performance is a good rational justification. The fast aperture allows for a shallow depth of field, should I want it, but I've found I often prefer a stopped down version if I have enough light.
