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

Generally better IQ in all light.

I agree faster lens have generally better optics but i have a have 35F2 Yongnuo which although decent has a lot to be desired at F2.

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

So you go from a full frame sensor up to what?

I don't know?  ! started with a compact but im at FF. Every generation of FF is improving.

Maybe i get a ginormous speed light.

And why would you use a speedlight if a larger aperture would do the job in natural light ?!

Honestly i rarely shoot below F2.8.

I photography people singles and groups. I don't like the one person in focus and the other person not. If i don't have a speedlight or can't use it then sure i use the faster aperture, but i rather just use my zoom and have most people in focus.
