Interesting people buy faster lenses for the better IQ in low light.

If i want better IQ in the low light, i use a bigger sensor and a speed light.

I don't want to carry a bigger sensor, and flash is taking a totally different picture.

Valid points.

I started with a 40D, acquired the Canon 28 1.8 lens because i was told it would improve my indoor shots.

Never really happy with that lens, especially shooting wide open. Picked up a flash and it made my photos so much better than just the lens.

There are ways to use a flash that can make images look natural. I agree it does change the look, but i take the IQ improvement if possible to use a flash.

Photography is changing, i think fast lenses will be less relevant in the future as sensor development and computational algorithms improve.
