Don't forget:

  • Brighter Viewfinder
  • More accurate auto focus
  • They tend to be sharper (a high quality f/2.8 lens is likely sharper at f/3.5 or f/5.6 then a lens with a maximum aperture of f/3.5).
  • The wider apertures tend to be bundled with other features (i.e better build quality, weatherproofing, better optical quality).

That would be option number 4.

Yes.

But if the goal is to understand why people buy fast lenses, you probably don't want a survey where lot's of people select "other."

Right now we're at 2.4% other, so I think we're good.
