45% - better quality glass

This one isn't a given.  There are some outstanding slower lenses now.  For example, the Canon 70-200/4L IS II and the Canon 100-400L IS II are both excellent optically.  I bought the 70-200/2.8L IS II, but interestingly one of the two reasons is not even in my poll - compatibility with a 2x teleconverter.  The other reason is speed in low light.
